    Stril Mariner upgraded for new role as field support vessel

    Vessel & ROV News // June 7, 2012

    Simon Møkster's Stril Mariner sailed from Simek's Flekkefjord shipyard recently after an upgrade in preparation for a new role as a Field Support Vessel working for BP and Talisman.

    The upgrade included increasing the ship's ORO capacity (1,00m3), installing oil detection radar and dispersant equipment. In addition a permanent hangar for oil s and skimmers were installed.

    BP and Talisman have also equipped Stril Mariner with a daughter craft. The daughter craft will have sufficient power to tow the oil boom and hold it in position.

    Stril Mariner also has a standby certificate and FIFI equipment.
