Rescue Boat Resolve Pioneer Upgraded
Salvage, emergency response and marine services company Resolve Marine announced that its vessel the Resolve Pioneer has completed its ABS special survey and U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) certificate of inspection following a drydock at Vigor Industrial in Portland, Ore. The drydock involved various technical upgrades, hull steel renewal, painting, overhaul and cleaning of the vessel.
The 207-foot rescue boat is based in Western Alaska and provides critical emergency response and oil spill readiness 24/7. The Resolve Pioneer also helps to ensure that commercial vessels transiting U.S. waters are compliant with USCG OPA 90 regulations, including Salvage and Marine Firefighting and Alaska Alternative Planning Criteria.
Joseph Farrell III, deputy CEO of Resolve Marine, said, “”For nearly 40 years, Resolve Marine has reinvested profits back into our response capabilities. We continue to be the best-equipped emergency response company, both in Alaska and globally. The Resolve Pioneer is the only fully crewed and dedicated emergency towing vessel in the United States and responds to dozens of emergencies each year, keeping thousands of gallons of oil from entering Alaskan waters. With the Resolve Pioneer on standby, Alaskan waters are protected.”
