Vroon’s second ERRV arrives in Aberdeen (Scotland)
Vroon has informed the company’s ERRV, VOS Fairness, has safely arrived in Aberdeen, following her long journey from Nanjing East Star Shipyard in China.
VOS Fairness is a state-of-the-art, Class-A, emergency response and rescue vessel, equipped with two daughter craft and one fast-rescue craft. She is the second delivery in a newbuilding programme of ten vessels, with six 50m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60m FSVs under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China.
Vroon Offshore said, “the wellbeing of our on-board colleagues and our customer requirements were of paramount importance when designing these vessels”. A revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape, which has been specially designed for Vroon, reduces the impact of waves and results in increased comfort on board and improved fuel efficiency. Crew comfort and fuel efficiency on location are further enhanced by a drop-down Aquamaster.
VOS Fairness will operate in the North Sea out of Aberdeen for Vroon Offshore Services. She is now being prepared for her stand-by duties and will begin a long-term charter on 1 October.
“We wish her and all who sail on her safe voyages,” Vroon Offshore stated in the release.
