The 70-meter long vessel now incorporates a suite of new subsea support services, including ROV, survey and subsea deployment and lifting capabilities.

MMA Crystal features a work-class remotely operated vehicle (ROV), a 50Te A-frame and a survey and positioning system.

According to the latest AIS data, the vessel is currently located in Singapore and is set to leave for Taiwan following the conversion.

MMA recently formed a joint venture with the survey company Global Aqua Survey (GAS) to target the offshore wind sector in Taiwan. It acquired 49.9% of the shares in the Taiwanese company and created the MMA Global Aqua JV.
