Topaz Engineering has delivered two WFSVs to ASP Work Boats.

Topaz Engineering, a subsidiary of Renaissance Services, has delivered two windfarm support vessels (WFSV) to ASP Work Boats Ltd, part of the global ASP Ship Management Group. 

David Borcoski, Group MD and CEO of ASP Ship Management Group said: “Topaz Engineering has done an excellent job in completing the construction of our wind farm support vessels and delivering them within the time-frame requested. We look forward to working with ASP again in the future.”

The contract, signed on 19th September 2011 was for the design and construction of two DNV +1A1 HSLC R1 Windfarm Service Category 1Vessels.

The two boats have a length overall of 18m, a beam of 7.5m, and a lightship displacement of 43 tons. Both are powered by two Scania 700hp engines and can operate up to 150 miles offshore at cruising speeds of up to 25 knots.

The vessels were built in Topaz Marine Engineering’s NicoCraft Aluminium Boat Building Facility in Abu Dhabi, and were completed in 7 1/2 months. NicoCraft LLC is one of the leading shipyards in the region, offering full turnkey design, construction, delivery and life cycle support services for new vessel construction and vessel conversion projects.

Thomas Bower, Managing Director of Topaz Engineering, added: “The windfarm sector is one of the fastest growing segments of the offshore support vessel market and having just delivered on these two windfarm support vessels, we are keen to offer our further support to this niche industry."
