Resolve Salvage & Fire (Americas), the emergency response division of international maritime emergency services contractor Resolve Marine Group, announced that the U.S. Coast Guard has approved Resolve to help oil tanker vessel owners comply with new OPA90 requirements by the February 22, 2011 deadline.

The USCG has already begun issuing Interim Operating Authorizations (IOA) for tank vessels that cite Resolve in their OPA90 Vessel Response Plans.  With an IOA in hand, Resolve client vessels will be permitted to continue carrying  petroleum cargoes in U.S. waters after February 22, when the new, more stringent OPA90 regulations become effective.  Vessel owners who have not yet filed Vessel Response Plans can comply with the impending USCG requirements by citing Resolve as their Salvage and Marine Firefighting responder and still expect timely approval of their plans by the deadline.

Resolve has pre-positioned equipment and personnel in many Captain of the Port Zones , to rapidly deploy for any tank vessel fire or other marine casualty event, anywhere in U.S. waters.  Resolve’s Salvage and Marine Firefighting coverage is available to tank vessel owners at no charge through 2011.
