VOS Champion commences work in exotic waters

leftArrow leftArrow


Singapore-managed anchor-handling tug support (AHTS) vessel VOS Champion has recently commenced operations for charterer Geocean SAS. This exciting new contract has seen our vessel relocate to the remote and exotic location of Papeete, French Polynesia, where she will be undertaking a new scope of work.


After a successful Thai charter, VOS Champion returned to our Singapore Loyang Offshore Base in March for a short port call. Working in close cooperation with our VOS Singapore colleagues, and adhering to the strict COVID-19 protocols, Geocean installed its own equipment on the vessel’s deck. Following this, VOS Champion set off for Papeete. A month-long mobilisation saw her encounter some rough weather before arriving safely at the beautiful island of Tahiti in early April.


The vessel is now fully operational for Geocean, acting as main construction vessel during the charterer’s pipelaying operations for the realisation of a sea-water air-conditioning (SWAC) system for the French Polynesia Hospital (CHPF). It is proving a real eye-opener for our team on board and we are pleased to report that the project is proceeding smoothly.


We wish the charterer, the vessel and her crew a safe and successful campaign ahead!
