According to Vroon’s statement on Friday, VOS Champion was delivered to its new charterer in early November and immediately mobilized to Sandakan, Malaysia. Upon arrival, the first task was to connect the vessel’s towing wire to Coastal Contracts’ Accommodation Work Barge (AWB) Asia Pride 39308.

Both units will form part of a marine spread supporting the charterers’ deepwater development and offshore brownfield modification project off the East Coast of India. Operating from the port of Kakinada, VOS Champion’s primary duty will be to tow, run anchors, and provide support to the AWB.

VOS Champion will initially tow AP39308 to Batam, Indonesia. There, the vessel will load cargo and assist the AWB in conducting mooring trials, before starting a tow to the area of operations off the Indian coast.

The firm period of the current contract will last until March 2020.

VOS Champion is a KCM 65m 6,500 BHP AHTS vessel, operated and managed by VOS Singapore. Delivered to Vroon in 2016, it is one of a series of six such vessels specially designed for the company by Khiam Chuan Marine, in close collaboration with Vroon’s Performance and Engineering Department, and constructed at Fujian Southeast Shipyard in Fuzhou, China.

VOS Champion is equipped with DP2 capabilities, 425m2 clear deck area and anchor-handling/towing winches of 1,500m x 64mm.

Earlier this year, the vessel was under charter with Chevron.
