Palfinger Ned-Deck and its subsidiary Fast RSQ received an order from Sentinel Marine Ltd. in Aberdeen to supply UKOOA compliant rescue equipment for four emergency response and rescue vessels (ERRVs), which will include one 7 m aluminum fast rescue craft, type FRSQ 700 A; one 10 m aluminum daughter craft, type FRSQ 1000 A; one PRH 35H FRC davit and one PRH 75AP daughter craft davit.

“This order allows Palfinger Ned-Deck to maintain its hold on the davit sector for ERRVs and the company has also announced the arrival of its subsidiary Fast RSQ, which is incorporating all the latest designs and regulations in the daughter craft market with a focus on custom-made cabin designs for the aluminum FRSQ 1000 A daughter craft. This order not only displays the strength of the Palfinger Marine branding, it also shows the intent of Sentinel Marine to provide its fleet with these cutting-edge rescue craft and its focus on operating expenses,” said Alexander Schouten, commercial director at Palfinger Ned-Deck.

Sentinel Marine Ltd. currently has four vessels under construction, which will enter the U.K. emergency response and rescue vessel market in the course of 2014. Built according to the latest industry standards, each vessel will have a desirable edge in terms of environmental friendliness due to the fuel-efficient design and will also offer the crews a higher level of on-board comfort. Once launched, the Sentinel Marine fleet will be the youngest and most technologically advanced fleet serving in the North Sea.
