Vroon sends VOS Sugar SSV down the slipway

Vroon has launched its 68-metre long subsea-support vessel (SSV) VOS Sugar that is currently under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.

According to the company, the vessel is the first of two such vessels being built in Fujian, both fitted with an active heave-compensated crane.

The vessels will be the sixth and seventh in Vroon Offshore Services’ SSV fleet, with two additional SSVs planned for 2016.

Vroon says that VOS Sugar will be delivered to the company in September. After its arrival in Europe, it will be further outfitted during the winter months and will be ready in time for the 2016 subsea season.

VOS Sugar will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Den Helder.
