    Stirling Shipping vessels converted

    News // March 15, 2002
    Stirling Shipping, the offshore vessel operator based in the UK, which was acquired by Seacor Smit in the US last year, has refitted two of its medium size platform supply vessels (PSVs) - the Stirling Capella and Stirling Dee - in order to turn them into multipurpose vessels capable of acting as Emergency Rescue & Response Vessels (or standby vessels, as they used to be known) for operation in the southern North Sea.

    The company has confirmed that it also plans to convert another of its medium size PSVs, the 2,584dwt, 5,000bhp Stirling Altair, into a combined cargo carrier and standby vessel. The Stirling Capella and Stirling Vega will be re-named Putsford Provider and Putsford Protector, having been transferred to Putsford Offshore, another Seacor Smit-owned company, and have been assigned to standby duties on behalf of BP.
