HHIC's large disaster response vessel (Courtesy of HHIC)

Hanjin Heavy Industries & Construction (HHIC) said on Nov. 6 that it has won an order to build a 5,000-ton multi-purpose very large disaster response vessel from the Korea Marine Environment Management Corporation (KOEM).

It is 102 meters long and 20.6 meters wide and has a 5,000-ton capacity. This multi-purpose disaster response vessel is capable of collecting marine artifacts quickly and effectively performing composite functions such as navigation, emergency tugging, dredging, etc. in the event of various marine and marine pollution accidents that occur in the sea.

Currently, 60 small and medium-sized disaster response ships with a capacity of less than 500 tons are operated in Korea to cope with maritime pollution accidents, but the need for large-scale ships has been raised as it is difficult to access the accident site during bad weather conditions.

The KOEM reflected the European anti-disaster ships in its design after thorough preparation, including thorough inspections and expert advice, and HHIC will be in charge of building it this time.

The vessel is normally used for dredging, collecting marine artifacts, other ships, and emergency tugs, and is immediately used for prevention work if an accident occurs.

It can quickly recover oil leaked into the sea by using a 15-meter-long sweeping arm (a device that connects oil fence with a ship to maintain the shape of a fence).

HHIC plans to build a large-scale anti-disaster ship at its Yeongdo shipyard and deliver it to the KOEM in 2022.
