Looking very spick and span after emerging from the Garvel Drydock yesterday afternoon following her ten day visit there, the emergency response and rescue vessel DEA OCEAN has been given not only a new livery, but also a new name. According to the American Bureau of Shipping, the classification society that she is registered with, the name change to VOS OCEAN took effect today. She is now carrying the funnel markings of Vroon Offshore Services - the parent company of her previous owners Nomis Shipping - as well as their hull colours, as part of a fleetwide transformation that is taking effect as each vessel is drydocked in turn.
