Vroon launches two MPSVs

Vroon has announced that the launching has taken place, at Fujian Southeast Shipyard (FSES) in Fuzhou, China, of VOS Primrose and VOS Prince, two multi-purpose platform-supply vessels (MPSV).

The vessels were launched on Saturday 10 and Sunday 11 January 2015, respectively.

VOS Primrose and VOS Prince, the third and fourth in a series of ten sister vessels ordered during 2012 and 2013 by Vroon Offshore Services, have an SPS code. All ten vessels are equipped with full (under-deck) supply capabilities, that include stainless-steel tanks for the carriage of methanol, but also provide accommodation and work space for up to 40 client staff.

The company says that this unique vessel concept provides a free deck space of 720 sqm and is based on a KCM design. In close cooperation, Khiam Chuan Marine (KCM), Vroon’s Newbuilding Engineering Department, the world-renowned yacht designer KER Yacht Design & Engineering and Force Technology in Copenhagen worked together to fully optimise the design in order to ensure favourable motion and sea-keeping ability and efficient fuel consumption (both in DP mode and during transit).

According to Vroon, six of these vessels are expected to be delivered by FSES later this year, followed by four sister vessels in 2016.
