Topaz Newbuild Finishes First Offshore Wind Gig
Topaz Energy and Marine’s newbuild subsea vessel Topaz Tangaroa has arrived in Eemshaven, the Netherlands, after completing its first offshore wind work.
According to DHSS, the vessel has just finished work on the 370MW Norther project in Belgium and is preparing for deployment on the next offshore wind farm.
At the beginning of the year, Topaz Energy and Marine signed an agreement with an unnamed north European contractor to charter Topaz Tangaroa for work on renewable energy projects, primarily in support of offshore wind farms in the southern North Sea.
The charter contract took effect from February for a firm duration of seven months, with options to extend to late 2020.
Topaz Tangaroa is a 1,000m², diesel-electric light subsea construction vessel with 82 pax accommodation in comfort class 3, equipped with an AHC 120-tonne subsea construction crane.
