China: Fujian Southeast Shipyard Delivers AHTS Vessel VOS Athena to Vroon

Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) has taken delivery of VOS Athena, a new addition to their offshore fleet, on January 10th 2012. The vessel was delivered from the Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China at approximately 11.00 hours local time. She is an “A class” anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel and the last of a series of six vessels built at this yard for Vroon.

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 stern thruster (6 MT). Consequently, they have improved manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. VOS Athena has a DP-1 notation.

The vessel will leave the yard in the coming days and will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd in Singapore.

VESSEL PARTICULARS:

Length o.a 59.25 m

Beam 14.95 m

BHP 5,150 BHP

Bollard Pull 66 Tonnes

TOC Americas

TOC (The Terminal Operations Conference) has long been considered best in class by container terminal operators and their suppliers. Over time, TOC has evolved and whilst they continue to deliver the highest quality technical content in line with their heritage, they also recognise that they must now hear from stakeholders higher up the cargo chain. Therefore, there are now two distinct elements to the event:

The exhibition is a showcase for port & terminal technology and operations plus TECH TOC, the free to attend technical conference aimed at terminal operators and their suppliers. Many suppliers come together to showcase cutting edge solutions to their clients, the terminal operators and ports.

More recently, the events now placed a new focus on the container supply chain making them the premier business and networking event for the stakeholders, including shippers, carriers and 3pl’s as well as the global operators and port authorities. This conversation takes place in the more recently created Container Supply Chain Conference.
