We are pleased to announce that last Thursday 20 September 2012, Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) have taken delivery of VOS Atlanta. This new addition to the VOS fleet was delivered from Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China at 15.30 hours local time.
VOS Atlanta is a 59-metre “A class” anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel and the second of three vessels being built at this yard for Vroon with the additional class ABS notation “Oil recovery Class 2”.
The “A-class” vessels are slightly more advanced than the “H-type” and “T-Type” AHTS vessels also operated by Vroon, having a bigger bow thruster (8 MT) and, in addition, a stern thruster (6 MT). Consequently, they have improved manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. VOS Atlanta has a DP-1 notation.
The vessel will leave the yard 24 September 2012 days and will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd in Singapore.
