Vroon has informed that its newbuild platform supply vessel (PSV), the VOS Passion, completed sea trials in China last week.
The company said on Monday that the vessel is in the final stages of construction and it will be ready for delivery next month.
VOS Passion, a PX121-type platform supply vessel, is the fourth of six such vessels being built at the Cosco Shipyard for Vroon, all featuring the Ulstein-patented X-BOW design.
The PSV complies with ABS class requirements for dynamic-positioning system Class II (DPS-2) and reduced noise and vibration to satisfy a Comfort-Class notation. With a length of 83.4 meters and a beam of 18 meters, the vessel provides 850 m2 of deck space and a load capacity of 4,200 tonnes (dwt).
The naming ceremony for the PSV was held last month at the Cosco Shipyard in Guangdong, China.
Once delivered, all PX121s will operate under the management of Vroon Offshore Services.
