Offshore support vessel operator Topaz Energy and Marine has commissioned its new emergency response and recovery vessel (ERRV).

The new-build, Topaz Responder, was constructed by Topaz Engineering, Topaz Energy and Marine’s sister company in Mussafah, Abu Dhabi.

The 51m-long vessel with a deadweight of 775t is designed to offer safety support to offshore installations, along with general offshore support services.

Topaz Energy and Marine CEO René Kofod-Olsen said: "We see a growing opportunity in the emergency response market as safety becomes increasingly embedded in our clients’ operations as a strategic imperative.

"The modern and state-of-art Topaz Responder is therefore an excellent and timely addition. The new vessel not only supports our growth strategy, it also underscores our commitment to maintaining one of the youngest fleets in the industry."

"We see a growing opportunity in the emergency response market as safety becomes increasingly embedded in our clients’ operations."

Features of the vessel include on-board medical treatment and recovery facilities, as well as firefighting and oil recovery capabilities.

In addition, Topaz Responder is equipped with dynamic positioning Class 1 capability and two Caterpillar 3512B engines.

The vessel will be capable of accommodating 300 people and has a fully equipped treatment room.

Topaz Energy and Marine also plans to launch a multi-purpose support vessel (MPSV) mid-year, while a 150t bollard pull anchor-handling tug supply vessel (AHTSV) is expected to be added into its fleet in late 2016.
