Naming ceremony held for Vroon duo

Vroon’s two newbuilding Emergency Response Rescue Vessels, VOS Faithful and VOS Famous, have been named in ceremonies held today, Monday, November 24, at Nanjing East Star Shipyard in China.

VOS Faithful was christened by Monique Haverbeke, Crewig Assistant at Vroon Ship Management B.V., who has worked for Vroon for 37 years. VOS Famous was named by Hanneke Rikken-Taat, wife of Eric Rikken, Vroon Group Technical Director.

These two 50‑m ERRVs are part of a ten-vessel newbuilding programme, with six 50-m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60-m vessels under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China.

All these vessels have a wave-piercing bow shape that has been specially designed for Vroon. The first two vessels, VOS Fabulous and VOS Fairness, have already been delivered to the company and are operating out of Aberdeen for Vroon Offshore Services.

VOS Faithful and VOS Famous are scheduled for delivery to Vroon in the coming months and will be operational in the North Sea next spring.
