Aberdeen-based Vroon Offshore Services has been awarded a multi-million pound contract with oil giant BP.
Under the agreement, Vroon will provide emergency response and rescue vessels (ERRVs) to support BP’s operations in the North Sea and West of Shetland. The contract is for two years with the option to extend to five.
Craig Harvie, managing director of Vroon Offshore Services Aberdeen, said: “The award of this major contract strengthens our relationship with BP with whom we have worked for many years. It underlines the confidence our customers place in our safe, valued-added and cost-effective approach.
“The significant investment in our fleet in recent years has cemented our position as a market leader in the UK Continental Shelf and the Irish Sea.
“With this modern and versatile fleet and highly qualified, experienced colleagues, we are committed to providing safe, reliable and cost-effective services which meet the needs of our customers who operate in some of the challenging North Sea environment.”
Vroon Offshore Services, which employs 50 people onshore and 1,000 seafarers, has its own rescue-craft maintenance workshop in Montrose and an office in Great Yarmouth.
