The Turbine Transfers vessel “Porth Dinllaen” yesterday undertook an emergency medical evacuation of a critically ill passenger from a Cruise vessel in the Irish Sea.
The Port Dinllaen was undertaking her normal work of surveying in the Liverpool channel, for client Van Oord when she was asked to respond to the outbound cruise vessel who needed to get the seriously ill passenger ashore as quick as possible.
The Crew responded immediately, with client permission, breaking away from her survey duties to get the passenger onboard. Once onboard, the vessel proceeded at maximum speed to Liverpool pier head where awaiting emergency services took over.
Earlier this year, the same Turbine Transfer vessel also successfully transferred a seriously ill passenger from the Fred Olsen liner “Boudicca”.
Turbine Transfers are owner & operators of 40 crew transfer vessels – working throughout Europe and the Americas for clients such as DONG, Siemens, Van Oord, VBMS.
