New Oil Spill Response Vessel for Briggs Marine
Briggs Marine has signed a contract for the provision of a Meercat MM15 15 metre oil spill response vessel to work in the Mersey. The vessel, which will service one of Briggs’ long term contracts, will be delivered later this year. It has been carefully designed to allow a wide range of other activities to be undertaken, these in addition to its main role of oil pollution prevention.
Briggs’ Marine Services Director, Iain Ross, said: "This is our second Meercat. Our first, ‘Forth Linesman’, continues to provide great service to our Clients in the Forth and elsewhere. This new vessel will further support our growth in the port services markets and whilst it has been designed to be simple, robust and safe it also has several innovative features."
