BP extends vessel contract with Vroon Offshore Services
Published by Nicholas Woodroof,
One of the largest providers of emergency response and rescue vessels (ERRV) in the North Sea, VOS will continue its exclusive provision of four class-leading, high-performing vessels to support BP’s North Sea and West of Shetland assets until 2023. These are VOS Discovery, VOS Fairness, VOS Innovator and VOS Vigilant.
The extended contract will guarantee continuity in the delivery of vital standby cover for BP’s offshore workers and secure the jobs of around 100 Vroon seafarers.
Craig Harvie, VOS Aberdeen Managing Director, said: “With BP’s commendable and ambitious targets to become net-zero by 2050, we are pleased to be able to support them with our extremely fuel-efficient vessels, many of which have diesel-electric power generation that significantly reduces their carbon footprint.
“Sustainability and carbon reduction are key considerations for our customers’ future needs and we are proud to be able to meet these.”
