Boskalis will add the multipurpose DP2 offshore construction vessel Boka Tiamat to its fleet. The vessel will arrive in January 2020 and will be deployed on offshore wind projects in Taiwan.

The Boka Tiamat, previously known as Topaz Tiamat, was built by Vard Brattvåg and delivered by the shipyard in 2019. The vessel has a 98.1 metre length, 20 metre beam, a 1000 m2 deck and can accomodate 82 persons.

Boskalis now has it retrofitted with a 1300 kW SeaQ Energy Storage System. This will reduce fuel consumption and emissions during DP operations, the company states. In harbor and emergency mode the battery pack will also have a significant impact on reducing emissions to the environment.

The vessel will join the fleet of offshore wind vessels also including the transportation and installation vessel BOKA Lift 1. Source: Boskalis LinkedIn
