Liverpool (Birkenhead) UK-based maritime sector contractor MPE Interiors says it has completed an outfitting contract for North East shipyard operator UK Docks, aboard the offshore support vessel 'Ocean Tay'.

MPE carried out the refurbishment works at  Wear Dock & Engineering in Sunderland as part of a conversion to the Ocean Tay, a 63-m (207-ft) Class A Emergency Response and Rescue Vessel (ERRV), operated by Atlantic Offshore Rescue Ltd.

MPE director Cliff Grainger said it delivered a broad range of services on the conversion: "We were delighted to assist UK docks on this conversion. The scope of work included outfitting of a new survivor area, modification of crew cabins to include new en-suite facilities for each cabin and new boat deck accommodation with three new en-suite crew cabins.

Other work included modification of the existing laundry facility by creating a changing room annex, a new gymnasium and lining out of the new bridge wing extensions. For the above work, MPE supplied and installed the new panel systems, doors and wet spaces and also manufactured new cabin furniture.

Following the successful completion of the conversion the Ocean Tay has been chartered by Nexen Petroleum UK Ltd to work on its Golden Eagle Area Development in the North Sea.
