Under the contract, AHTS Siem Topaz will perform services for Helix Robotics Solutions in Taiwan.

The work is set to commence this month and will take place for a firm period reaching into Q4 2023.

Siem Offshore stated that the vessel would be employed for a project within the offshore wind industry, but did not reveal exactly which one.

The 2010-built Siem Topaz is designed for towing and anchor handling, deep water inspection and construction work. It features a high-capacity gantry crane for anchor and cargo handling and can accommodate 60 persons.

According to Siem, the 91-meter-long vessel of VS 491 CD design has low fuel consumption and low emissions.

In terms of most recent company-related news it is worth mentioning that last month Siem Dorado was getting ready to carry out a term campaign for marine geophysical service provider PXGEO in Brazil.
