Offshore support service provider, the Netherlands-based Rederij Groen recently took delivery of its third Maaskant SRSV 3509 vessel, built at Maaskant Shipyards Stellendam, a member of the Damen Shipyards Group. The 35m offshore chaser, named 7-Stars, joins Rederij Groen’s fleet of almost 30 vessels, alongside sister vessels 7-Oceans and 7-Waves.The three vessels were designed by Vestvaerftet ApS in Denmark in close cooperation with both Rederij Groen and Maaskant.

Speaking during the handover ceremony in the Dutch harbour town of Scheveningen, Maaskant Managing Director Frits van Dongen said, “This really is a proud day for all of the team at Maaskant. And of course, we look forward to maintaining and servicing Rederij Groen’s fleet in the future.” The two companies have a relationship stretching back more than a decade and all of Rederij Groen’s five new Seismic Research Support Vessels have been built at Maaskant. Shortly following the 7-Stars delivery, Rederij Groen placed a further order for a Damen Twin Axe FCS 2610. The vessel will be the first Damen Twin Axe Fast Crew Supplier in Rederij Groen’s fleet.
