Dutch shipping company Vroon has named the final in a series of six PX-121-type platform supply vessels (PSV) built in China. 

In a statement on Monday, June 5 Vroon said that the PSV VOS Patriot was Christened on May 28 in a ceremony conducted in Rotterdam. The vessel was named by Mrs van der Velde, wife of Wim van der Velde, Chief Technical Officer of Seaway Heavy Lifting.

VOS Patriot, featuring the Ulstein-patented X-BOW design, was built at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard in China and delivered to Vroon last month.

All six vessels operate under the management of Vroon Offshore Services, with VOS Patriot’s five sister PSVs active in North West Europe and the Mediterranean.

According to its owner, VOS Patriot has been fixed for 70 firm days plus further options thereafter. The vessel will be operating primarily at Trianel Windpark Borkum II on the German Continental Shelf, where it will provide noise-mitigation assistance for charterers, Seaway Heavy Lifting.
