AMS can provide emergency towage services available around the Australian coastline utilising the Pacific Responder which is a dedicated emergency towage vessel (ETV) which is regularly deployed throughout the Great Barrier Reef and surrounding areas.
It is the only vessel of its capability and type in Australia and spends the majority of its time patrolling at sea with emergency towage events taking precedence over its maintenance duties.
The ETV Pacific Responder is a 64 metre, 900 tonne vessel which improves Australia’s maritime emergency response capabilities. The vessel enhances Australia’s ability to respond to a shipping incident in this sensitive and important marine environment. The powerful ocean going vessel is also equipped to carry out other first response activities.
