BP Trinidad and Tobago LLC has awarded Vroon Offshore Services Aberdeen a multiple year, multi-million pound contract.
This award will see industry recognised North Sea emergency response vessels and expertise transferred to international waters.
Vroon Offshore, the North Sea’s largest operator of emergency rescue and response vessels (ERRVs), will provide three specialist vessels to support BP’s operations in the Caribbean: the VOS Gorgeous, the VOS Fabulous and the VOS Grace. Dedicated to supporting offshore operations 24/7 365 days a year, ERRVs are fully equipped to recover and rescue people from the water, provide a place of safety and medical aid. They also monitor the safety zone, helping to avoid collisions, act as a first response in handling oil spills and as a reserve radio station.
These vessels and their specialist crews have departed from North Sea waters to service the contract and Vroon Offshore will establish a local presence in Trinidad and Tobago to support them.
