The ‘Responder 1’ is based upon the Alnmaritec Wave Worker class but is a unique design variant that was developed for use by the Barbados National Terminals Company Limited at their Oistins Bay oil loading facility. The vessel is fitted with a large hydraulic boom reel and a stern roller for her primary role in deployment of an oil containment boom around the loading tankers to contain any spills and she carries dispersant spray arms which can be used for pollution control around the harbour. She has a large hydraulic knuckle boom crane that serves a large working deck with a removable bow bulwark which makes her capable of buoy maintenance and she has a dive ladder and side access facility for diver support. She has a comfortable air conditioned wheelhouse with seating for four and a small WC and she provides a very stable and versatile platform for a variety of harbour duties in addition to her pollution control tasks.
