Sartor Offshore Vessel Reaches Safety Milestone



Sartor Offshore has achieved another landmark 1,000 days offshore with no lost time injuries on its multi-role offshore support vessel, the Ocean Spey. Ocean Spey is the seventh vessel in its ERRV (emergency rescue and response vessel) fleet to achieve this goal.

In recognition to reaching this safety milestone Shell recently presented the crews with an award to mark their achievement. Ocean Spey has been on hire to Shell since 2000 supporting the Brent field and has recently commenced a new 10 year charter.

John Bryce, managing director of Sartor Offshore Rescue Ltd, said, "We are delighted to have again reached this safety landmark on the Ocean Spey. It is a fine vessel with an excellent team onboard and this recognition is a testament to the hard work and respect and adherence to safety of the team onboard.

"We work hard to maintain safety levels onboard all of our vessels and are delighted that the work we do, and the service we provide, is being recognized by Shell and further reinforcing our long-standing relationship," he continued.

Sartor Offshore Rescue currently manages a fleet of 13 ERRVs (emergency response and rescue vessels) & PSVs (platform supply vessels) out of Aberdeen.

The Ocean Spey is designed and arranged for offshore rescue and assistance, tanker assistance, towing, field assistance, and carrying and unloading deck and liquid cargo to rigs and production platforms.

The company's aim has been to continue to expand its standby and emergency response capabilities within both the Norwegian and British sector of the North Sea and to be able to provide cross-border solutions reflecting the needs of its clients.
