Welcome to OSRL

SWIS Appreciation Site

Mobilisation Methods

Here you can find out how the Capping Stack Systems (CSS) and Subsea Incident Response Toolkits (SIRT) can be transported - by road, sea or air.

OSRL will work in tandem with the Incident Owner to ensure an efficient and effective response is delivered in proportion to the incident. The response will be coordinated by the OSRL Incident Manager through the Emergency Operations Centre.

The full SWIS suite can be transported by road, sea or air. All four Capping Stacks will be stored in a built, deployable state whilst the two SIRT will be containerised and ready for deployment.

In the event that a Capping Stack is required to be transported by air the manufacturer will be required to disassemble the stack and load into shipping containers.
The preferred and most efficient method of transporting the Capping Stack System is by sea.
