A large open deck area is available to carrying equipment and supplies for various offshore exploration, production, and support activities.

According to Aqualis, the liftboat can be deployed rapidly to provide a stable platform in its elevated position for maintenance and construction work. Various international companies have provided all the main equipment.

It is due to be delivered in 1Q 2017 with the second liftboat to follow later the same year.
