Offshore shipowner Vroon Offshore Services has reached two milestones in China with the launching of one vessel and the keel laying for another.
Last week the VOS Start was launched at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China, while earlier this week there was the keel laying of sister vessel, VOS Stone.
Both are DP2 subsea-support walk-to-work (W2W) vessels, constructed to a new design and commissioned by Vroon to meet the increased demand for offshore accommodation and transfer solutions, the company explained.
VOS Start and VOS Stone can carry a total of 87 persons, offering accommodation and work space for up to 60 workers. The new design of vessel can be fitted with a W2W system and offshore crane.
