Pollution Control Boat [Archives:1998/30/Local News]

July 27 1998

The Yemen Maritime Authority placed an order with Halmatic Limited to design and build an 18 meter oil pollution control boat. The boat will be stationed at Aden and will provide an emergency service combined with collection capabilities for oil spill incidents.
Halmatic selected the 18 meter Arun type hull from their wide range of available designs. The excellent sea keeping qualities and load carrying abilities of this well proven hull is ideal for the demanding task.
The boat will be built, within 12 months, under Germanischer Lloyds classification and fitted with a comprehensive arrangement of oil pollution control systems including floating booms, collection and dispersant equipment.
