Guard Vessels

SFFSL provides guard vessels selected to meet client requirements. Working fishing vessels are particularly appropriate as they utilise local fishermen’s knowledge and provide appropriate communication. Mainly engaged to deter fishing and other vessels in the vicinity from approaching vulnerable subsea assets, and potentially hazardous areas, guard vessels are utilised during installation, construction and decommissioning phases on a wide range of oil and gas, renewable, and cable lay projects.  Our clients include major international oil and gas companies and installation contractors. Regular vessel inspections carried out by our qualified and experienced in house team, working alongside client auditors as required, prioritises safety and delivery of service.
