Gobbler Boats is committed to protecting the environment. Its new Gobbler Offshore 290 Oil Spill Recovery Vessel (OSRV) not only excels at remediation, but harnesses the latest in environmentally sound fire suppression technology. The boat comes standard with a Sea-Fire pre-engineered system and 3Ms innovative Novec 1230 Fire Protection Fluid. Sea-Fire is a well-known and respected brand in the marine marketplace, said Simon Jauncey, Gobbler Boats technical manager. Its products are well-engineered, produced in ISO9001 approved facilities and are technologically on the leading edge. We chose Novec 1230 because its in line with Gobbler Boats ethos of protecting the environment, continued Jauncey. 3Ms next-generation fire suppression fluid is a replacement for Halon. Electrically non-conductive and non-corrosive, expensive machinery and electronics arent damaged during discharge. With a low toxicity value, it also offers the highest margin of safety for workers within occupied spaces. Environmentally clean, it has a global warming potential of 1the same as CO2and will not deplete the ozone. What makes the 29 Gobbler Offshore 290 unique is that it doesnt store recovered oil, instead it tows 3,434 gal. detachable bladders behind the vessel. This allows the boat to operate almost non-stop and collect upto 6,400 bbls of 98 water-free reusable oil per day. It will operate in less than 1.5 of water, making it ideal for shoreline work, but carries a Lloyds G3 certification for offshore coverage to 60 nm. With an 8.5 beam, its easily trailerable, or stowed on a ship or platform. The boat was awarded the Seawork 2015 Spirit of Innovation trophy and was a category winner for Vessel Design Construction.
