Marshall Branson Builds OSRV; Building Two Vessels For South Korea

Marshall Branson Marine of the U.K. completed a Bravo 120 Oil Spill Response Vessel (OSRV) commissioned by Caltex Services (U.K.) Ltd. The vessel, named Cleansea, is bound for Bahrain where it will be stationed at the BAPCO Oil Refinery. The Cleansea Bravo 120 will also serve as a maintenance, logistics and dive support boat.

Propulsion of the craft is by twin Caterpillar 3116TA turbocharged marine diesel engines developing 250 hp at 2,600 rpm. Twin Disc MG5061A gearboxes drive twin Teignbridge four-bladed AquaQuad 87 propellers in tunnels.

A cathodic protection system is fitted to the aluminum alloy hull to cope with the high temperature and high salinity conditions experienced in the Gulf area.

Oil Skimming and Boom Deployment Craft On completion of the Bravo 120, Marshall Branson commenced work on two Traktakat- type craft for Korea. The Traktakat 150 oil skimming vessel and the Traktakat 120 boom deployment vessel will work in tandem at the Honam Oil Refinery in South Korea. Both craft are of the catamaran hull-type. Propulsion is by twin Cummins 6BTA5.9M1 marine diesel engines developing 250 hp at 2,600 rpm. Each engine is fitted with a Twin Disc MG505A gearbox driving Teignbridge sterngear and a four-bladed AquaQuad 87 propeller, giving each vessel a light speed of 20 knots.
