Service contracts for standby oil spill recovery vessel(s)

The Agency intends to provide additional response capacity to that of the pollution response mechanisms of EU Member States through contractual arrangements with commercial companies/consortia. Such companies/consortia can be drawn from any relevant industry including shipowners/operators and the spill response service industry.
The contracted vessels would undertake normal commercial activities and, at request, be transformed & mobilised at short notice for at-sea oil recovery services during a (major) oil spill.

A description of the nature and the value of the services can already be found in the Prior Information Notice (PIN ref: 2013/S 010-011407) published in the Official Journal of the European Union.

Further details on administrative conditions for participation and technical requirements will be included in the Contract Notice to be published in late January.

Two Information Meetings open to any interested party will be organised in February (see the details in the table below). Prior registration is not needed. Although it would be appreciated to receive an e-mail indicating the participation in the meeting.
