Resolve Marine, Fort Lauderdale, Fla., reports that its U.S.-flag response tug Pioneer has received an AMVER Award for a fourth consecutive year. Resolve says the award represents an acknowledgment of its continued investment in continuously crewed vessels and response resources ensuring safe transit and environmental protection through participation in APC Alaska/OPA90 SMFF compliance services.
Resolve’s Pioneer is the only privately funded salvage tug in North America. Based in Dutch Harbor, Alaska, the 24/7 manned response tug is a core asset for Resolve with availability and operational efficiency to benefit client requirements and United States Coast Guard (USCG) AMVER criteria.
The 2020 AMVER presentations were made virtually in conjunction with this year’s virtual NAMEPA 2020 Safety at Sea Seminar, with Resolve accepting the award from USCG Admiral Charles Ray and AMVER Director Ben Strong as part of the larger NAMEPA program.
“For Resolve being a part of the AMVER program is an honor and one we take with great pride,” says Lindsay Malen-Habib, Client Services Manager – Resolve Marine, “Being available to assist the USCG in saving lives is not just our job it is our duty.”
