Tideman Boats’ new oil spill response craft
Tideman Boats OSRC prototype
Tideman Boats are developing a dedicated HDPE oil spill response craft (OSRC) in partnership with Hebo Maritime Services.
Renowned for their robust nature, the Tideman Boats are made from HDPE and are capable of speeds of up to 50 knots, with a range of 20 miles offshore.
Bruno Tideman, MD of Tideman Boats, commented, “The Tideman OSRC will be capable of swift oil boom deployment, and will provide high-speed response even in the most challenging of conditions. The Tideman OSRC will deploy 400m of oil boom, and has an integrated skimmer. It is easily transported inside a container or on a trailer, making it extremely versatile.”
Hebo Maritiemservice are experts in taking measures to control oil and chemical spills, with specially trained teams on standby 24 hours a day to respond to both small and large spills. These teams are equipped with the most advanced equipment available priding themselves on their ability to react fast whilst never losing focus on the environment.
“The Tideman HDPE boats are used in every environment where there is possibility of impact and if you require a boat that is indestructible and maintenance free then this is the boat that you need”, Eric Jes, Tideman.
