Resolve Marine Group has further strengthened its fleet with the acquisition of the 152-ton bollard emegency towing vessel (ETV), 'Resolve Monarch', from JP Knight (Lowestoft) Ltd., and the vessel is currently en route to the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand where she will assist with Resolve’s work on the 'MV Rena' project.

Previously named the Anglican Monarch, the purpose built (ETV) was on contract with the United Kingdom government, where she served as part of the government’s coast line emergency response fleet, actively involved in many high-profile maritime casualty rescues. 

“The Monarch is a great addition to our growing global fleet and enhances our worldwide emergency response and salvage capabilities for our OPA-90 clients and others,” according to Damian Allan, Resolve’s Director of Business Development. 

The vessel was designed to serve as a dedicated emergency response and salvage vessel in northern European waters.  For her first assignment, Resolve Monarch sailed from Invergordon, Scotland on August 19, 2013, and is currently en route the Bay of Plenty, New Zealand where she will assist with the company’s work on the wreck of the MV Rena project.   

“Adding this purpose built ETV to our fleet not only strengthens our global emergency response abilities, but also reflects our commitment to offer clients the best resources available,” says Joe Farrell, President of Resolve Marine Group.
