Vroon’s DP2 subsea-support walk-to-work (W2W) vessel “VOS Stone” was launched last weekend at Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China.
VOS Stone, and its sister vessel VOS Start, are constructed based on a KCM 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.
VOS Start and VOS Stone are scheduled for delivery later this year and will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services.
