ABS and Topaz Energy and Marine, a leading offshore energy logistics company, have, together with the State Maritime Agency under the Ministry of Transport, Communications and High Technologies of the Republic of Azerbaijan, announced the implementation of a pioneering project enabling a condition-based survey approach. This achievement, which resulted from the visionary approach between Topaz, ABS and ASMA, marks a significant step in Topaz’s journey to transform its fleet to a condition-based class model. The entry of Caspian Voyager, Topaz’s largest modern Platform Supply Vessel in the Caspian, into the Extended Dry-Docking scheme acts as a bridge for this transition. The programme will extend the vessel’s maximum dry-docking period from 5 to 7.5 years, allowing the vessel to undergo In-Water Surveys, resulting in higher availability and productivity.

This new partnership between Topaz, ABS and AMSA is the first step in many towards a condition-based classification regime. This will align Topaz’s maintenance strategy with future condition-based class rules from ABS, moving from a prescriptive survey to condition-based.
