R e p o r t s

The Dutch Emergency Towing Vessel (ETV) is coming into action for all kinds of dangerous situations at sea. This may vary from local control of shipping during unscheduled repair of a vessel at sea, communication platform between the vessel in distress and the coastguard station ashore, towing of the vessel in distress to protect fixed platforms, shipping and the Dutch coast for collision and/or grounding, fire fighting, rescue of persons and/or being the work platform for other rescue services. To give some examples of above mentioned tasks some special reports are added to this website. Not all actions are recorded on this website and therefore this will not give a reliable view on the actual amount of performed actions on a yearly basis.
