The vessel was delivered to the company at Flensburger Schiffsgebau, Germany, Siem Offshore informed through social media.

The vessel is built in compliance with the Marine Offshore Drilling Units (MODU) class.

The vessel has a length of 158 meters, a beam of 31 meters and an accommodation capacity for 150 people.
