Vroon wins ERRV contract from BP

Dutch offshore vessel operator Vroon Offshore Services has been awarded a new contract with BP Trinidad and Tobago, for the provision of emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV) services.

Under the contract, three vessels VOS Fabulous, VOS Gorgeous and VOS Grace, will be supporting BP’s operations in the waters of Trinidad and Tobago.

The contract follows on from an 2018 agreement between BP and Vroon to supply multiple ERRVs in the North Sea and West of Shetland for a multi-year term.

“We are delighted that BP Trinidad & Tobago selected Vroon Offshore Services as the preferred partner to support its local operations and that BP appreciates the benefits of implementing the North Sea ERRV model in this region. Being awarded this opportunity to provide BP with the required services, using such modern, multi-role and fuel-efficient ships, will give us the chance to further enhance our well-established partnership,” commented Vroon Offshore Services Aberdeen’s managing director Craig Harvie.

“The new contract and repositioning of three offshore-support vessels also signals a strategic move into the Caribbean and South American market for Vroon Offshore Services, as we continue to assess further opportunities in the region,” Harvie added.
