    Abu Dhabi National Oil Company accepts delivery of DM&SV "Tawam1" from Grandweld Shipyard

    Grandweld, one of United Arab Emirates leading shipyards, has successfully delivered one Dive Maintenance & Support Vessel “TAWAM1” to Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC), the shipbuilding company said Tuesday.
     
    Grandweld took the new-build project from conception to completion, designing and building the 50m long vessel with a 65-ton bollard pull capability, after signing a contract in December 2013 with ADNOC. TAWAM1 will be operated by ADNOC’s group company, Abu Dhabi Petroleum Ports Operating Company (IRSHAD).

    This was a prestigious contract and cements our relationship with ADNOC, one of the world’s leading oil and gas companies,” comments Jamal Abki, General Manager of Grandweld. The vessel will perform a broad range of tasks, designed with real versatility, performance and operational integrity.

    Amongst its many specifications, TAWAM1 is equipped with anchor handling equipment and an offshore lifting crane with a capacity of 35 ton at 7.5m reach. 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 crew, is fitted with integrated diving systems and is classified by DNV GL to fire fighting capability class 1.

    We take pride in designing the vessel that are defined by both quality and value, adds (name, position) Grandweld. ADNOC is an important client for our state-of-the-art, Dubai Maritime City-based yard, and we look forward to working again with them.

    Grandweld’s delivery to the firm comes after the recent successful deliveries of a 42m Aluminium Crew Boat to Global Marine Operation Co and a Crane Workboat to Kuwait Oil Company (its fourth for the customer).

    Last month the yard signed a contract with International Naval Works to design, build and deliver three high speed 21.3m Aluminium Crew Boats. Delivery of these vessels is scheduled for early 2016.
