Aberdeen-based global shipping and energy company the Craig Group has launched a new vessel in Spain.
The Grampian Talisman - representing an investment of £12 million - will join the firm's fleet of offshore vessels later this year.
The 256ft platform ship was launched by Samantha Craig - the fourth generation of the family to work at the company.
North Star operates 29 ships and has just taken delivery of three newly-built emergency response and rescue vessels as part of a seven-ship, new-build programme to modernise its fleet.
Craig Group managing director Douglas Craig said: "This additional investment is good news for the group, our industry and the North Sea in general.
"It underlines our confidence in their long-term future."
Since 2001, the group has invested a total of £70 million in new ships.
