Workboats Northwest Builds USCG-Certified "Near Shore1' Oil Spill Control Vossol

Workboats Northwest, Inc. of Seattle designed a fast, shallow draft boat for Cook Inlet Spill Prevention and Response Inc. The Cook Inlet Capable (CIC) is reportedly the first USCG-documented Oil Spill Response Vessel (OSRV) towboat under OPA '90. The CIC vessel can make a 180-degree turn at full speed in a 20-ft. radius, and can turn 360 degrees at its full speed of 30 knots. Draft of the hull with skegs is just 16 in. at rest. The vessel develops 3,800 lbs. of bollard pull with a Caterpillar 3208TA diesel engine that puts out 435 hp at 2,800 rpm. This power plant drives a Doen DJ140 waterjet through a ZF reduction gear. The engine is cooled by a Fernstrum keel cooler and is served by a Harco dry exhaust system.

Workboats Northwest designed the boat last year for the Cook Inlet pollution control cooperative. For more information on the boat Circle 43 on Reader Service Card
