A rescue vessel for Resolve Marine is returning to service in western Alaska after a refit meant to last another five years.
Back in Dutch Harbor
Resolve Pioneer completed a special survey from the American Bureau of Shipping and a certificate of inspection from the US Coast Guard following a drydock at Vigor Industrial in Portland, Oregon. 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 round-the-clock emergency response and oil spill readiness. Resolve Pioneer also helps to ensure that commercial vessels transiting US waters are compliant with Coast Guard oil pollution regulations, including plans for marine firefighting and salvage.
Deputy CEO Joseph Farrell III says, “For nearly forty 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.”
Resolve Pioneer, originally built as a tug/supply boat in 1978, returned to Dutch Harbor last week. The vessel carries a crew of twelve.
