Vroon’s ‘VOS Famous’ launched in China

Vroon Offshore has informed that, on Wednesday 10 September, Vroon’s newbuilding ERRV, VOS Famous, was launched in China.

This 50‑m ERRV (emergency response and rescue vessel) is currently under construction at Nanjing East Star Shipyard.

VOS Famous is the fourth in a ten-vessel newbuilding programme, with six 50-m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60-m vessels under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China. All these vessels have a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape that has been specially designed for Vroon.

The first vessel, VOS Fabulous, is already operating out of Aberdeen for Vroon Offshore Services.

VOS Famous is scheduled for delivery to the company at the end of the year and will be operational in the North Sea next spring.
