New ERRV joins Sentinel Marine fleet

first_imgScottish offshore support vessel provider Sentinel Marine has taken delivery of a new multi-role emergency response and rescue vessel (ERRV).Sentinel said on Thursday that the vessel, named Biscay Sentinel, was the seventh such vessel in the company’s fleet with a further two under construction and due to enter service later this year.Biscay Sentinel was delivered at the Cosco Guangzhou shipyard in China this month and is expected to arrive in Aberdeen in early May.The company added that the vessel would immediately join Sentinel’s fleet of ERRVs operating in the North Sea providing services to the oil and gas industry.“Rather than retrofitting existing vessels, we have invested significantly in creating a unique fleet of custom-built ERRVs, ensuring they are kitted out with the latest onboard technologies and crew facilities,” Sentinel said.According to the company, the multi-role ERRVs in its fleet can take on multiple roles while at sea. Apart from its primary role of protecting and saving lives, the vessels can be used for a range of secondary tasks, ranging from cargo storage to oil recovery.Rory Deans, CEO of Sentinel, said: “The offshore environment can be unpredictable, and so safety is of the utmost importance to operators working at sea. We are delighted to be adding Biscay Sentinel to our fleet to ensure that we continue to offer our clients an unparalleled service, backed up by the latest technology available.“Many ERRVs in operation are repurposed fishing or supply vessels, however by designing our fleet from the ground up, we have been able to ensure that it is fully equipped with everything our crews require to keep our clients safe offshore.“Multi-role vessels like Biscay Sentinel provide a greater flexibility for our clients […] they can also be used across a range of other tasks, including rescue towing and dynamic positioning.”The Biscay Sentinel is 62 meters in length, 15.5 meters wide, can accommodate 26 people, and has a 26-bed recovery area along with a 75-seat recovery area.last_img read more

Coach Doc Rivers enjoying Clippers’ defensive trend

first_imgClippers coach Doc Rivers was still raving about the defensive effort his team gave in its 112-91 victory over Denver on Saturday.But even more impressive to Rivers was it represented the fourth consecutive game the Clippers held an opponent to fewer than 100 points in a game.“I do like the trend,” Rivers said. “I think we’ve been trending that way for a while defensively and it’s nice. My belief is you can play defense every night, offense you can try to play every night but it might not work out for you. You can miss open shots and just have a bad night, but your defense should always be there. At least the effort.”It’s not just at one end of the court, either. The Clippers limited Denver to six fast-break points in addition to the Nuggets’ 35.7 percent shooting from the field. Recently, the talk of the Clippers’ defense has started with the almost fanatical way Jordan has embraced his role as the defensive captain.“It starts with our bigs. DJ and Blake (Griffin) have been amazing,” Rivers said. “DJ’s leadership defensively – It’s funny, he’s mad the most on defense now, which I love because he takes it so personal when anybody scores.“Earlier in the year I thought he took it personally when his guy scored. Now he’s taking it personal if a guy’s making a 3 on the opposite side of the floor.“That’s what you need to take scoring personal and I think our guys are starting to do that.”Chirp chirpRivers was asked if the Clippers were the type of the team that could get under the skin of the other team on the court.“I noticed that last year. We probably talk,” Rivers said, “I don’t know what the hell’s going on out there. I really don’t.“We’ve just got to keep playing. I hate when we get distracted by it. I think we’re getting better but that’s an area we still have to improve in. We’re getting better also at leaving the officials alone and playing. We still have to get better there.”As if to prove that point, less than two minutes into the second quarter Jordan picked up his third foul. And a technical foul.Less than five minutes later, Rivers picked up a technical of his own. “We’ve had the effort in my opinion all year. We just weren’t in the right places all year and now we’re starting to get to the right places, the right spaces, and our talk defensively has been phenomenal. Our weak side defense has been improving. “Last night was one of our better nights because Denver runs. Against them that’s saying a lot . We’re starting to obey our rules, which is nice.”Opponents are noticing too. It didn’t surprise Minnesota coach Rick Adelman.“They certainly had the tools to do that,” Adelman said. “They had the size with (DeAndre) Jordan, and they’re active, and Chris (Paul) has always been one of the better point guards defensively too. It’s just something that as they play more under Doc, they’ll continue to get better defensively.”It’s personal nowcenter_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
