Kuwait Oil Company gets a new Oil Spill Recovery/Offshore Support Vessel
The 60m RAmpage 6000-ZM vessel Koc Al Zour, built by Uzmar Shipyard, will be the largest Robert Allan Ltd. design ever built in Turkey. She is designed and constructed as a modern double azimuth stern drive (ASD) and is the most capable multipurpose oil spill recovery and offshore support vessel Kuwait Oil Company has ever ordered.
The vessel is equipped to undertake operations such as oil spill response, oil spill containment and recovery, area surveillance, offshore fire fighting, back flush capabilities, logistics supply duties, towing services, other offshore services and rescue operation, and related duties in the area around Kuwait and nearby international waters.
Koc Al Zour has dynamic positioning (DP) capability and is also equipped with an efficient oil recovery, storage, and transfer system of recovered oil to barges and/or shore facilities. When not employed in oil recovery, the vessel is suitable for offshore support. The vessels hull shape and the optimized location of the anti-roll tanks ensures that the best possible sea-keeping behavior is always achieved while on stand-by at sea for long periods of time.
