Topaz names newbuild tandem

Topaz names newbuild tandemTopaz Energy and Marine, a Dubai-based offshore support vessel company, has christened its two newbuild light construction vessels.

Topaz said on Wednesday it named its vessels Topaz Tiamat and Topaz Tangaroa after the Mesopotamian Goddess of salt water and the Maori God of the sea, respectively.

As Offshore Energy Today reported in September 2015, the vessels were ordered from Vard Brattvaag in Norway for $115 million. The company also has an option to order two more vessels of the same type.

The vessels are of VARD 3 08 design meant for light subsea construction with intervention duties. According to prior statements, the Topaz Tiamat and Topaz Tangaroa are scheduled for delivery in 3Q 2017 and 4Q 2017.

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.
