On February 5, 2015, Vroon took delivery of VOS Pace. The vessel was handed over to Vroon during a ceremony held at Cosco Guangdong Shipyard in China. VOS Pace is the first of six PX121-type PSVs being built at the Shipyard. The vessels will be delivered to Vroon during 2015 and 2016.
According to the company, they are intended for operation in European waters and will be managed by Vroon Offshore Services in Den Helder.
The Ulstein PX121, with 850 m2 deck space, is an X-bow design which ensures reduced and smoother vessel movements in harsher conditions. Vroon says that this provides better operational and fuel-efficiency advantages to the charterer, in combination with high crew safety and comfort standards.
