GALLERY: ‘Topaz Tiamat’ tests the waters of Norway
Topaz Energy and Marine has shared the photos of its latest newbuild, the Topaz Tiamat, undergoing sea trials in Norway.
The UAE-based owner of offshore support vessels ordered the Topaz Tiamat from Vard Brattvag in Norway back in September 2015.
Topaz Tiamat was ordered together with its sister vessel Topaz Tangaroa for $115 million.
The vessels are of VARD 3 08 design meant for light subsea construction with intervention duties.
These DP2 class vessels, when completed, will have 120-tonne active heave compensated offshore cranes with the capability of reaching working depths of 3,000 meters. Subsea equipment can be lowered down onto the seabed through a moonpool or over the shipside.
Also, both vessels will have two Remote Operated Vehicles (ROVs), which will be deployed via Launch and Recovery Systems (LARS) in the side and accommodate up to 82 persons in high standard cabins.
