Vroon, a Dutch provider of offshore support vessels, has taken delivery of VOS Sugar, the newest addition to the Vroon Offshore Services fleet.
The vessel was handed over to the company in a ceremony held on Tuesday February 2, 2016 at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.
VOS Sugar is a DP2, SPS-coded, 68-metre subsea-support vessel (SSV) and the first of two newbuilding SSVs being built at Fujian. Sister vessel, VOS Star, will be delivered to Vroon later this year.
According to the owner, these vessels are fitted with active heave-compensated crane and one retractable plus one super-silent tunnel bow thruster, enhancing DP performance, fuel efficiency and crew/client wellbeing.
VOS Sugar left the shipyard last weekend at the start of its journey to the North Sea. After arrival in Europe, the vessel will be further outfitted and available for the 2016 subsea season. It will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Den Helder.
