Resolve Salvage & Fire CG

Approved for OPA90

Resolve Salvage & Fire (Americas), the emergency response division of international maritime emergency services contractor Resolve Marine

Group, announced that the U.S.

Coast Guard has approved Resolve to help oil tanker vessel owners comply with new OPA90 requirements. The

USCG has already begun issuing

Interim Operating Authorizations (IOA) for tank vessels that cite

Resolve in their OPA90 Vessel

Response Plans. With an IOA in hand, Resolve client vessels will be permitted to continue carrying petroleum cargoes in U.S. waters as the new, more stringent OPA90 regu- lations have come into effect. Resolve has pre-positioned equipment and personnel in many Captain of the

Port Zones, to rapidly deploy for any tank vessel fire or other marine casu- alty event, anywhere in U.S. waters.

Resolve’s Salvage and Marine

Firefighting coverage is available to tank vessel owners at no charge through 2011.

On Feb. 2, a team of emergency responders from Resolve Marine

Group and Pacific Environmental

Corporation (dba

PENCO)/American Marine

Corporation, demonstrated their marine fire fighting capabilities in

Honolulu Harbor. The trained crew of locally and internationally recog- nized professionals conducted an equipment deployment exercise, uti- lizing pumps and fire fighting moni- tors stored at the PENCO/American

Marine facilities on pier 13, and oper- ated from the deck of the M/V

American Islander.

Guard in Washington DC and in

Honolulu approved Resolve and

PENCO/American Marine as the only providers of OPA90 Salvage and

Together, Resolve Marine Group and
