One of Vroon’s newest vessels, VOS Glamour, yesterday arrived in Aberdeen, following its long journey from Fujian Shipbuilding Trading in Fuzhou, China.
The launch of the vessel VOS Glamour took place in June 2014 and the naming ceremony was held in November at Fujian South East Shipyard in China. VOS Glamour was delivered to Vroon in December. After the delivery, the vessel embarked upon its long journey to Aberdeen.
VOS Glamour is a 60-m ERRV-FSV (emergency response and rescue vessel/field-support vessel) and the first in a series of four such FSVs being built for Vroon. The vessels feature a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape and a 300m2 cargo deck. The remaining three vessels will be operational in the coming months.
VOS Glamour will operate in the North Sea out of Aberdeen for Vroon Offshore Services. It is now being prepared for duties and will start a long-term charter on February 25.
