The multi-role emergency response and rescue vessel Ocean Falcon was named at a ceremony at Aberdeen on May 29.
Built at Zamakona, San Sebastian, she is the last of three HY820 design by Havyard Ship Design ordered by Atlantic Offshore Rescue and is on a 5+5 year contract with Shell UK. The ship is providing emergency recovery, rescue cover, tanker assistance and general field support services for offshore operations at the Curlew Field, in the North Sea.
She is Atlantic Offshore Rescue’s third new vessel in 12 months and has the amenities to rescue up to 300 people. Her sister vessels, Ocean Tay and Ocean Osprey, entered service last year.
