A specially built oil recovery vessel designed to serve as a command and control center as well as provide on-water recovery operations. The vessel has a maximum transit speed of 12-knots and is over 200 ft. in length. Each Responder has four 1,000 bbl storage tanks to allow for on board separation during recovery operations. Additionally, each Responder has two integrated oil-water separators should their use be required. The Responder has berthing for 38 personnel and emergency medical capability onboard. The vessel is also outfitted with a helicopter deck.
FRVs are 46 ft. in length and have a 25-knot speed of advance. These vessels are designed to transit and deploy equipment quickly, but due to limited onboard storage and accommodations are not capable of sustaining response operations without additional support resources. FRVs can operate in near-shore, coastal and inland environments up to 50 nautical miles from shore.
These vessels range from 28’ to 30’ in length and have speeds up to 17-knots. They have on board skimming, collection and storage and are best suited in near-shore, coastal or inland environments.
