Atlantic Offshore has, together with Statoil, decided to convert Ocean Response to act as full oil recovery and oil spill vessel.
The vessel, with the length of 75 meters, is an emergency response & rescue vessel, constructed to handle advanced emergency- and rescue operations, and maintenance of loading hoses in oil fields.
It can accommodate up to 24 people onboard.
Following conversion, the vessel will then have more flexibility to serve as an emergency and response vessel, Atlantic Offshore noted.
The modification will be done at Hellesøy Verft in Norway.
