Protection of people

A cleanup operation must not adversely affect the health of those carrying it out.

The ECOCEANE solution

The living quarters of ocean-going vessels comprise several separate areas:

  • Wheelhouse
  • Decontamination air lock with shower
  • Sleeping area, with bunks, shower rooms and heads
  • Daytime area, with galleys and messes

Personnel are not required to carry out any exterior operations, other than to deploy the transfer hoses

The living quarters and wheelhouse are protected and pressurised, so that the safety of those on board is guaranteed when working in polluted areas

The specific features of our vessels provide maximum safety protection for the crew:

  • Maltese cross certified hull
  • Machine point
  • Bureau Veritas certified materials
  • Gas detection system
  • Electrical system to ATEX standards
  • Fire insulated cabin
  • Hydraulic controls from the cabin
  • Bureau Veritas classification: Category 1 and Oil Recovery Ship.
