Shipping and energy services firm Craig Group has launched their latest emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV), the Grampian Deliverance, at the Balenciaga Shipyard in Northern Spain this week.
This is the third in a series of six vessels commissioned by Craig Group as part of a £70 million investment.
Douglas Craig, Chairman & Managing Director, Craig Group Ltd, said: “This significant investment plan is part of our continued drive to operate the largest and most modern British wholly owned fleet engaged in the UK Offshore Industry.”
The vessel, managed by Craig Group division North Star Shipping, is 50 metres long with one daughter craft, one fast rescue craft as well as state-of-the-art survival facilities. Christened by Gill Buyers, the Grampian Deliverance is the third of six new vessels to be delivered to North Star Shipping during 2014 and 2016.
The Grampian Dynamic and the Grampian Dynasty were launched earlier this year, with one further D-Class IMT 950 ERRV along with two F-Class IMT 958 ERRVs to be delivered by 2016.
