Topaz OB

Moduler Carrier Vessel to Topaz Energy and Marine

868 OB 2

Topaz OBs primary activities are transport of pre-assembled modules (deck cargo) to be installed on the Tengiz oil field. With its shallow draft hull form and low air draft together with the specified propulsion configuration and low fuel consumption, the vessels will be well suited for heavy cargo operations in shallow waters and river systems.

The vessels are fitted with:

• Large cargo deck.
• Recess deck from frame #-6 to frame #163 to accommodate multiwheeler loading.
• Efficient, high capacity water ballast system.
• IMO approved ballast water treatment system.
• Two main azimuth propellers aft.
• Two tunnel thrusters forward.
