ABERDEEN, UK – Sentinel Marine has taken delivery of its 10th newbuild emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV).
Built in Fujian, China, the 60-m (197-ft), 2,030-metric ton Cromarty Sentinel is expected to arrive in Aberdeen in early March.
The Cromarty Sentinel is said to be the company’s most efficient vessel. It has enhanced efficiency features including dynamic positioning upgraded to DP-2, allowing it to maintain position even in the event of component failure and giving an additional level of safety. Other enhancements and safety features include firefighting to Class1 standard, oil recovery, dry bulk, brine and liquid mud capacity.
As with all the newbuilds in the Sentinel fleet, the Cromarty Sentinel also has a green passport. The vessel has accommodations for up to 34 crew members.
The remaining two vessels in this phase of newbuilds are expected to be delivered by the end of 2022.
