DUBAI, UAE – Marsol International has introduced Rhino Craft, a multi-purpose workboat for the oil and gas industry.
The company, working with Rhino Marine, says the craft can undertake various roles including support vessel for maintenance operations, a sturdier alternative to small inflatable boats, and providing assistance with firefighting.
Additionally it can be used as a dive scuba replacement boat.
According to Anton Wale, Rhino Marine engineering director, Rhino Craft hulls are fabricated from high density polyethylene (HDPE) which is a ductile, high strength plastic providing high levels of UV and chemical resistance.
HDPE performs well in harsh environments, he added, and is easy to repair by relatively un-skilled staff when damaged. Rhino Craft have been designed primarily for the offshore oil and gas market where conditions are rough and craft are exposed to severe impact loadings.
