Atlantic Offshore to convert ‘Ocean Response’

Atlantic Offshore has, together with Statoil, decided to convert Ocean Response to act as full oil recovery and oil spill vessel within the NOFO 2009 regulations. 

Atlantic said on Thursday said that the vessel will then have more flexibility to serve as an emergency and response vessel. The modification will be done at Hellesøy Verft.

Ocean Response is the next generation emergency response & rescue vessel, constructed to handle emergency and rescue operations, and maintenance of loading hoses in oil fields.

The multi-role vessel, of a VS 465 MKII design, is developed and designed by Wärtsilä Ship Design in cooperation with Atlantic Offshore. It was delivered in 2013 and immediately started working for Statoil in the North Sea.

The vessel is 75 meters long with evacuation space for 370 people, equipped with fire emergency (Fi-Fi I and II), 1st line oil spill response, and the bollard pull is 120ton.
