Vroon awarded charter with ENI on long-term drilling project off Mozambique
Vroon, an international shipping company, announced it has been awarded a charter with ENI on a long-term drilling project off Mozambique, with platform-supply vessel (PSV) VOS Princess to join sister vessel VOS Principle in support of the drillship SAIPEM 12000. ENI’s campaign will resume in the second half of December, after a suspension due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The project is scheduled to last around seven months.
VOS Princess and VOS Principle have both completed the necessary special surveys and are now proceeding to African waters, where they will commence work in the coming weeks.
VOS Princess, under management of VOS Singapore, had spent the earlier part of this year on an Indian charter, performing supply and accommodation duties. Her 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. Her docking and special survey were carried out in Italy and Greece, before departure to Mozambique.
