Singapore: Vroon Offshore Services Take Delivery of AHTSV VOS Athos

Yesterday Vroon Offshore Services (VOS) have taken delivery of VOS Athos. This new addition to the VOS fleet was delivered from Fujian Southeast Shipyard in China.

VOS Athos is a 59-metre “A class” anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessel and the first of three vessels being built at this yard for Vroon with the additional class ABS notation “Oil recovery Class 2”.

The “A-class” vessels are slightly more advanced than the “H-type” and “T-Type” AHTS vessels also operated by Vroon, having a bigger bow thruster (8 MT) and, in addition, a stern thruster (6 MT). Consequently, they have improved manoeuvring and station-keeping capabilities. VOS Athos has a DP-1 notation.

The vessel will leave the yard in the coming days and will be operated by Vroon Offshore Services Pte Ltd in Singapore.

Length o.a 59.25 m
