The Netherlands: Vroon Takes Delivery of AHTS VOS Atlanta

Last Thursday Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) have taken delivery of VOS Atlanta. This new addition to the VOS fleet was delivered from Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China.

VOS Atlanta is a 59-metre “A class” anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel and the second of three vessels being built at this yard for Vroon with the additional class ABS notation “Oil recovery Class 2”.

The “A-class” vessels are slightly more advanced than the “H-type” and “T-Type” AHTS vessels also operated by Vroon, having a bigger bow thruster (8 MT) and, in addition, a stern thruster (6 MT). Consequently, they have improved manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. VOS Atlanta has a DP-1 notation.

The vessel will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd in Singapore.

VESSEL PARTICULARS

Length o.a. – 59.25 m

Beam – 14.95 m
