On November 22, 2014 the AHTS vessel, VOS Champagne of Vroon Offshore Services was delivered to Chevron Thailand to start a four-year charter. Vroon says that VOS Champagne replaces VOS Atlas, which has been employed by Chevron for the past month.
VOS Champagne is a Focal-680-design vessel from Focal Marine, with LOA of 65.0m. The vessel is equipped with DP-2, 2 x 10T bow thrusters, 1 x 8T stern thruster and has a certified bollard pull of 87 metric tonnes.
VOS Champagne is the first of two vessels constructed at Fujian Funing Shipyard in China, with her sister vessel, VOS Chablis, scheduled for delivery to Vroon early next year.
