Vroon awarded multi-year charter for two PX-121 platform-supply vessels
Vroon Offshore Services has been awarded a multi-year charter for two PX-121 platform-supply vessels (PSV), supporting Total E&P UK Limited (TEPUK) operations on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS), the company said in its press release.
Vroon’s PX-121-type PSVs have been successfully trading in the UKCS since their delivery in 2015 and 2016, supporting a number of North Sea clients in both the spot market and on term contracts. The first vessel will begin duties with TEPUK in February 2018, with the second due to commence operations in September 2018. Both contracts are for a firm period of three years, with options available thereafter.
The award of this charter is testament to the high-quality offering from Vroon Offshore Services. It not only relates to the modern vessel design, but also pays tribute to the excellent, highly motivated crew members who sail on our vessels and deliver the services to our clients.
Total is a major energy player and leading oil and gas operator on the UKCS. We are delighted to have been given the opportunity to support their business activities in the coming years.
The two chartered vessels, which are still to be nominated, form part of a series of six PX-121 type PSVs, constructed for Vroon at the COSCO Guangdong Shipyard in China. They feature an Ulstein-patented X-Bow design that ensures smoother vessel movements, optimal fuel efficiency and maximum comfort on board. The final vessel in the series, VOS Patriot, is scheduled for delivery later this year.
