Shipping company Atlantic Offshore has informed that a new emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV) will be joining its fleet soon.
According to Atlantic, the vessel named Ocean Clever will join the company’s fleet this month.
The vessel was built in 2009 in Jiangsu Zhenjiang, China, and is being converted to a Class A ERRV with dual FRC and dual DC capacity with 65 tonnes of bollard pull.
It is currently completing its conversion at the Orkov yard in Denmark and will replace the previous relief vessel, Ocean Troll.
Atlantic added that the additional vessel would employ 30 seafarers in the UK continental shelf.
It is worth reminding that Atlantic Offshore sold the Ocean Sprite and Ocean Swan emergency response and rescue vessels (ERRV) late last month for recycling in Denmark.
Coincidentally, Offshore Energy Today reported on a vessel named Ocean Clever in April 2016. Namely, that Ocean Clever vessel was a 1975-built multi-role supply vessel also owned by Atlantic Offshore and sold to Denmark for recycling.
