Grandweld in the United Arab Emirates has delivered a dive maintenance and support vessel, Tawam1, to Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).
Grandweld took the newbuild project from conception to completion, designing and building the 50m vessel, which has a 65 tonne bollard pull after signing a contract in December 2013 with ADNOC.

This will be utilised to manoeuvre heavy lift items such as gravity anchors, mooring buoys and SBM hoses. In addition, the vessel, which can accommodate up to 30 people, is fitted with integrated diving systems and is classified by DNV GL to fire fighting capability class 1.
