The Zamakona Yards in Pasajes, Spain has finished refitting two vessels, VOS Hades and VOS Hera, owned by Vroon Offshore Services UK and has launched a video detailing the work carried out on the vessels.
According to Zamakona Yards, the conversion required a major upgrade of the VOS H-Class to enable Rescue & Standby facilities for a Group B vessel. Furthermore, the project’s design, done by OSD-IMT OFFSHORE SHIP DESIGNERS, was created in order to meet the customer’s requirements and the UK MCA and UKOOA regulations.
New accommodation areas such as treatment area, hospital, reception, survivors and non survivors’ facilities, etc. have been done. Zamakona Yards says that new steel modules were necessary for those areas, as well as rearrangement of several spaces on board and a new rescue zone.
VOS Hades and VOS Hera were both built at Fujian SouthEast Shipyard in China, in 2009 and 2010 respectively.
