Vertom Patty, the first in a series of six 7,000 dwt vessels built for Vertom Group has left the Thecla Bodewes Shipyards Kampen facility. The vessel is now set to perform official sea trials in the North Sea befor joining the Vertom Group’s fleet.
Over the past few weeks, Vertom Patty has undergone extensive pre-commissioning works at the yard.
