Vroon Offshore expands fleet with new platform supply vessel

China’s Cosco Guangdong Shipyard has delivered the platform supply vessel (PSV), VOS Passion, to Dutch offshore vessel owner Vroon Offshore

Cosco said on Wednesday that the delivery documents between COSCO Guangdong and Vroon were signed recently.

Offshore Energy Today reported at the beginning of August that the newbuild PSV completed sea trials in China at the end of July.

VOS Passion, a PX121-type platform supply vessel, is the fourth of six such vessels being built at the Cosco Shipyard for Vroon, all featuring the Ulstein-patented X-BOW design.

The PSV complies 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 vessel provides 850 m2 of deck space and a load capacity of 4,200 tonnes (dwt).

The naming ceremony for the PSV was held in July at the Cosco Guangdong Shipyard, China.
