Vroon Gets VOS Sugar

Vroon Offshore Services has taken delivery of a 68-metre subsea support vessel (SSV) VOS Sugar.

The vessel was handed over to the company in a short ceremony held on February 02, 2016 at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.

VOS Sugar is a DP2, SPS-coded, vessel and the first of two newbuilding SSVs being built at Fujian. Sister vessel, VOS Star, will be delivered to Vroon later this year.

These vessels are fitted with active heave-compensated crane and one retractable plus one super-silent tunnel bow thruster.

VOS Sugar left the shipyard last weekend at the start of its journey to the North Sea. After arrival in Europe, the vessel will be further outfitted and available for the 2016 subsea season. It will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Den Helder.
