Service Contracts for Stand-by Oil Spill Recovery Vessel(s)

The Agency provides additional response capacity to that of the pollution response mechanisms of EU Member States through contractual arrangements with private or public companies/consortia. Such companies/consortia can be drawn from any relevant industry including shipowners/operators and the spill response service providers.

The contracted vessels would undertake normal commercial activities and, at request, be transformed and mobilised at short notice for at-sea oil recovery services during a (major) oil spill.

This procurement procedure for stand-by oil spill recovery vessels will cover the following geographical areas:

  • Canary Islands and Madeira
  • Southern Baltic Sea

More details about this procurement procedure can be found in the Invitation to Apply and associated Enclosures that can be downloaded in the zip file below.

Two Information Meetings open to any interested party were organised in January in Madrid and Gdynia (see the details in the table below).
