Vroon Christens ‘VOS Start’ in Amsterdam

Vroon’s newest addition to fleet, VOS Start, was named yesterday, July 20, at Damen Shiprepair in Amsterdam.

The vessel was named by Tracie Moyes from MHI Vestas Offshore.

VOS Start, Vroon’s first subsea-support walk-to-work vessel has been purpose built to support offshore operations in today’s Renewable industry and walk-to-work projects in the Oil & Gas industry. The vessel is equipped with a Bargemaster next-generation, motion-compensated gangway system and an active heave-compensated crane.

VOS Start will be delivered to MHI Vestas Offshore Wind in August, at the start of its first charter. It will provide offshore logistics support, accommodation and walk-to-work services during construction of the Walney Extension Offshore Wind Farm in the Irish Sea.

A sister vessel, VOS Stone, will be delivered to Vroon by Fujian Southeast Shipbuilding in China next week.
