In an update earlier this week Vroon said that it had fixed another charter for the VOS Princess vessel with Eni on a long-term drilling project off Mozambique.

The VOS Princess will join its sister vessel VOS Principle in support of the drillship Saipem 12000.

Eni’s drilling campaign in Mozambique had been suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to Vroon, the campaign will resume in the second half of December. The project is scheduled to last around seven months.

The vessel owner said that the VOS Princess and VOS Principle have both completed the necessary special surveys and are now proceeding to African waters, where they will start work in the coming weeks.

VOS Princess, under the management of VOS Singapore, had spent the earlier part of this year on an Indian charter, performing supply and accommodation duties.

The vessel’s docking and special survey were conducted in early November at the Keppel Yard in Singapore.

VOS Principle, managed by VOS Genoa, had previously worked for Eni in the region during 2019 and 2020.

Its docking and special survey were carried out in Italy and Greece, before departure to Mozambique.
