Double Naming Ceremony at Nanjing East Star, China
The naming ceremonies for VOS Fabulous and VOS Fairness were held at Nanjing East Star Shipyard in China, Monday 22 July 2013.
VOS Fabulous was christened by Mr Johan Oostdijk. Johan is an Accounting Administrator at Vroon B.V. and this year celebrates 40 years of employment with the company.
VOS Fairness was christened by Madam Zhang Hongxia, Chief Representative of Golden East Shipping Co. Ltd.
The vessels, 50-m ERRVs (emergency response and rescue vessels), are the first two in a ten-vessel newbuilding programme for Vroon. Six 50-m ERRVs are under construction in Nanjing and four 60-m vessels will be built at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, China.
All vessels have a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape that has been designed exclusively for Vroon.
VOS Fabulous and VOS Fairness will be delivered to Vroon Offshore Services this autumn and will be operational in the North Sea later in the year.
