EFCA Charters Sentinel Marine’s Vessel

Sentinel Marine has received a contract to provide a patrol vessel to be chartered by the European Fisheries Control Agency (EFCA) in international and EU waters.

The contract to charter the Lundy Sentinel, the multi-role emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV), is for an initial period of two years, with an option to extend for a further two years, the company said.

The framework contract has a maximum value of EUR 20 million for four years.

EU fisheries inspectors will use Lundy Sentinel as a platform for the monitoring, boarding and inspection of fishing boats as well as associated transport and support vessels.

It is possible that Lundy Sentinel will also be used for other operations besides fisheries control, in the framework of the European coastguard cooperation, including search and rescue, border control, disruption of trafficking routes, detection of criminal activities and enforcement of EU and national legislations, the company explained.

Sentinel Marine chief executive officer Rory Deans said, “This contract with the EFCA demonstrates that there is demand for the type of flexibility and efficiency that our fleet of ERRVs can bring outside our traditional oil and gas market.”
