North Star Shipping has reinforced its fleet of next generation vessels after taking delivery of its new emergency response ship – the Grampian Devotion – in Aberdeen.

The latest vessel represents the eight such vessel that the company has had specially built as part of a major £110 million investment programme.

Douglas Craig, Chairman and Managing Director, Craig Group, said: “The arrival of the Grampian Devotion underlines our commitment to ensuring that we continue to deliver a safe, high quality and cost-effective service to our clients.

“This also allows us to continue to train almost 100 cadets to further support the British marine industry and the next generation of seafarers.”

The 50-meter Grampian Devotion and her sister ships are outfitted as a minimum with one daughter craft, one fast rescue craft and state-of-the-art rescue facilities.
