(Photo: SWB)

An all new workboat, produced by the Portuguese company SWB, Seismic Workboats, Lda headquartered in Peniche, has been designed and developed by engineering teams from Portugal, England, the U.S. and Norway and built at Peniche Shipyard.   The new vessel is the first workboat SWB has produced for oil spill response.   In October, the National Maritime Authority in Portimão, Algarve (AMN) carried out a validation test consisting of an exercise for oil spill response in the marine environment, allowing testing and validation of the workboat in multiple scenarios.   “It is a special workboat, equipped with a controllable pitch propeller (CPP) which allows us to achieve high-speed and also to deliver the required bollard pull to tow oil containment booms,” said Filipe Duarte, from SWB.   In addition, the workboat was built to achieve much lower noise and vibration levels.   “I’d like to highlight the high stability that allows us to perform operations safely,” Duarte added.
