The Netherlands: Vroon’s VOS Apollo Begins Two-Year Charter with Gupco

Vroon announced that its Offshore Services’ VOS Apollo will commence a two-year charter with Gupco this week. Gupco (Gulf of Suez Petroleum Company) is a 50% BP joint venture with Egypt’s national petroleum company.

VOS Apollo, currently in Port Suez awaiting the start of this charter, is an anchor-handling tug-supply vessel built for Vroon in 2011 at Fujian Southeast Shipyard, Fuzhou in China. The vessel is equipped with retractable gangways on both port and starboard sides to facilitate ‘walk to work’ for the Gupco engineers. These gangways can be extended to a maximum 14m.

VOS Apollo is under ship management with VOS Pte Ltd in Singapore, with commercial and operational management undertaken by Vroon Offshore Italia. The vessel will operate from Ras Shukeir in the Gulf of Suez.
