Vroon has announced that its newly delivered VOS Pace has today left COSCO Guangdong Shipyard on her maiden voyage.
VOS Pace is the first of six PX121-type PSVs being built at the Shipyard for Vroon. The vessels will be delivered to the company during 2015 and 2016 and are intended for operation in European waters. They will be managed by Vroon Offshore Services in Den Helder.
The Ulstein PX121, with 850 m2 deck space, is an X-bow design which ensures reduced and smoother vessel movements in harsher conditions. According to Vroon, this provides better operational and fuel-efficiency advantages to the charterer, in combination with high crew safety and comfort standards.
