Vroon supports Glen Lyon FPSO tow

Vroon supports Glen Lyon FPSO towDutch shipping company Vroon has reportedly won a charter deal from oil giant BP for its anchor handler VOS Chablis, to support an FPSO towing operation.

According to data provided by Clarksons, Vroon is supporting the tow of the recently delivered Glen Lyon FPSO. The data further shows that another vessel owned by Vroon – VOS Prime platform supply vessel – is also supporting the tow.

The Glen Lyon FPSO in December 2015 set sail from South Korea where it was built, and is now en route towards the west of Shetland where it will serve as the hub for the 450 million barrel Quad 204 development in the North Sea. Vroon was not immediately available to provide more info on the charter.

According to data on Marine Traffic, the FPSO is currently sailing in the south Indian Ocean, some 900 miles south west of Jakarta, with Port Louis, Mauritius as designated next stop. The data further shows that the 270 meters long, 52 meters wide FPSO is being towed by three Terasea vessels, Eagle, Osprey and Hawk, with the two Vroon ships behind as support.

Following the stop in Mauritius, the Glen Lyon’s next destination – before setting sail to the UK – is Walvis Bay, Namibia.
