The 60m RAmpage 6000-ZM vessel 'Koc Al Zour', built by Uzmar Shipyard for the Kuwait Oil Company, will be the largest Robert Allan Ltd (RAL) design to be built in Turkey.

The vessel is designed and constructed as a modern double azimuth stern drive (ASD) and is considered the most capable multipurpose oil spill recovery and offshore support vessel that the owner has invested in. Koc Al Zour is outfitted and equipped to undertake operations such as oil spill response, oil spill containment and recovery, area surveillance, offshore fire fighting, back flush capabilities, logistics supply duties, towing services, other offshore services and rescue operation, and related duties in the area around Kuwait and nearby international waters.

The vessel has DP capability and is equipped with an efficient oil recovery, storage, and transfer system of recovered oil to barges and/or shore facilities. When not employed in oil recovery, the vessel is suitable for offshore support. The hull shape and optimised location of the anti-roll tanks ensures that optimum sea-keeping behaviour is achieved while on stand-by at sea for long periods of time.

Koc Al Zour will be Classed and Registered under the notation Lloyd’s Register ✠ 100 A1 Oil Recovery, Offshore Supply Ship, Fire – Fighting Ship 1 (2400 m3/h) with water spray, DP (AM), ✠ LMC, UMS.

On sea trials, bollard pull, ahead, of 48.15t and a free running speed, ahead of 13.29 knots were achieved.
