Donjon-SMIT, MSRC Partner for OPA 90 Services Assistance
Donjon-SMIT and Marine Spill Response Corporation (MSRC) announce the establishment of a cooperative alliance. This alliance, while it can support both tank and non-tank vessel owners, will include the ability of non-tank vessel owners to establish their prearranged agreements with both Donjon-SMIT and MSRC, required under recent NTVRP regulations by January 30, 2014 through enrollment linkages on either company’s website, as well as cooperation between the two companies in the event of a spill response or salvage/firefighting incident.
While this cooperative alliance will facilitate and support customers of both organizations in operations as well as compliance with OPA-90, it is important to note that there is no exclusivity requiring customers of either organization to contract exclusively with the other. Both Donjon-SMIT and MSRC recognize that operational choices and relationships may impact decisions on OPA-90 contracting.
