Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) Aberdeen has signed a multi-year, multi-million-pound contract with BP Trinidad and Tobago, to supply emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV) services for BP’s operations in Trinidad and Tobago.
The North Sea’s largest operator of ERRVs VOS, part of the Netherlands-based Vroon Group, will relocate three vessels, VOS Fabulous, VOS Gorgeous and VOS Grace, to the Caribbean to support the contract.
VOS Aberdeen managing director Craig Harvie said the contract will allow the company to build on a partnership it established last year with an agreement to supply multiple ERRVs in the North Sea and west of Shetland for BP Exploration Operating Company Ltd.
“The new contract and repositioning of three offshore-support vessels also signals a strategic move into the Caribbean and South American market for Vroon Offshore Services, as we continue to assess further opportunities in the region,” said Mr Harvie.
With an overall length of 50 m, VOS Fabulous has seats for 66 and bunks for 26 survivors and is fitted with rescue and daughter craft. Both VOS Gorgeous and VOS Grace have similar capacities for survivors, but are slightly longer at 60 m each and have dynamic positioning class 2 capability.
