Nanjing East Star Splashes Vroon’s VOS Faithful

Nanjing East Star Splashes Vroon's VOS Faithful

Vroon’s VOS Faithful was launched yesterday in China. This 50‑m ERRV (emergency response and rescue vessel) is under construction at Nanjing East Star Shipyard in China.

VOS Faithful is the third in a ten-vessel newbuilding programme, with six 50-m ERRVs being built at Nanjing and four 60-m vessels under construction at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, also in China. All vessels have a revolutionary, wave-piercing bow shape that has been specially designed for Vroon.

VOS Faithful is scheduled for delivery to Vroon Offshore Services in the summer and will be operational in the North Sea later this year.
