VOS Stone launched in China
VOS Stone was launched last weekend at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. in China. VOS Stone, and her sister vessel VOS Start, 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.
VOS Stone and VOS Start can carry a total of 87 persons, offering accommodation and work space for up to 60 client personnel. The vessels can be fitted with a W2W system and offshore crane, enabling the provision of services such as offshore-wind-turbine, substation-support and mothership duties for crew-transfer vessels (CTV). The vessels can also be fitted with a davit-launched daughter craft.
This new generation of vessel is based on a KCM design and complies with latest SPS-code regulations. Special attention has been devoted to motion characteristics.
VOS Start and VOS Stone are scheduled for delivery to the Company later this year and will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services.
