Vroon holds naming ceremony for new PSV

Vroon has held a naming ceremony for its newbuild platform supply vessel (PSV), VOS Passion, at Cosco Shipyard in Guangdong, China.

Vroon said that the ceremony was held on Monday and the vessel was christened by Mireille Vroon, wife of Vroon Group Managing Director, Coco Vroon.

VOS Passion, a PX121-type platform supply vessel, is in the final stages of construction and will be ready for delivery next month. It is the fourth of six such vessels being built at the Cosco Shipyard for Vroon, all featuring the Ulstein-patented X-BOW.

The company said that these PSVs comply with ABS class requirements for dynamic-positioning system Class II (DPS-2) and reduced noise and vibration to satisfy a Comfort-Class notation. With a length of 83.4 meters and a beam of 18 meters, the vessels provide 850 m2 deck space and a load capacity of 4,200 tons (dwt).

Once delivered, all PX121s will operate under the management of Vroon Offshore Services.

Also, the ceremony saw the naming of the livestock carrier Gudali Express with the christening being done by Stacey Stanton, wife of Michael Stanton, Managing Director International Livestock Export.
