ERRV Grampian Dynamic Hits the Water

Craig Group’s latest Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV), the Grampian Dynamic, was launched at Balenciaga Shipyard in Northern Spain on Tuesday 27th of May.

This is the first in a series of six new vessels, commissioned by Craig Group in a £70 million investment.

Douglas Craig, Chairman and Managing Director of Craig Group, said:  “This significant investment is part of our continued drive to operate the largest and most modern British wholly owned fleet engaged in the UK offshore industry.

The vessel, managed by the Craig Group division, North Star Shipping, is 50 metres long with one daughter craft and one fast rescue craft as well as state-of-the-art survival facilities.

Grampian Dynamic was christened by Laura Truscott, daughter of North Star Shipping’s Managing Director, Callum Bruce.

The vessel is to be delivered to North Star Shipping during 2014 and 2016. Three further D-Class IMT 950 ERRVs along with two F-Class IMT 958 ERRVs will also be delivered to replace existing tonnage in the fleet.

At present the fleet stands at 36 vessels and includes a mix of Platform Supply, Tanker Assist, ROV Support and Emergency Response and Rescue Vessels.
