Marsol to Exhibit at IDEX and NAVDEX 2017 in Abu Dhabi

Marsol International is a UAE-based global marine solutions provider focused on the offshore oil terminal market and related infrastructure. This year, Marsol will be exhibiting at IDEX and NAVDEX for the first time, to demonstrate its multi-purpose Rhino Craft 750 HDPE vessel. Delegates at NAVDEX will have the opportunity to experience the vessel at Stand 04-A22 during daily live water demonstrations.

Fabricated from ductile, high strength polyethylene, Rhino Craft workboats have been designed with a primary focus on the offshore oil and gas and coastal patrol markets, based on years of hands-on offshore experience. Conditions in these markets are extremely rough and craft are exposed to severe operating environments and resultant impact loadings.

Mike Young, a Marsol Director, said: “The Rhino Craft 750 HDPE vessel is extremely versatile and has significant advantages over other small craft in this category. They can fulfil a number of roles including support vessels for maintenance operations, robust replacements for semi ridged and inflatable boats and Dive SRP (Scuba Replacement) workboats.”


Together with Twiga of South Africa, Marsol will introduce the 850 Military Patrol Boat (MPB) variant of the Rhino Craft which has been designed for military and security close-to-shore and riverine operations. The 850 MPB provides another example of the wide range of applications of these robust and virtually indestructible water platforms.

Marsol leads a number of initiatives in the marine sector including emergency pipeline repair, hose management, asset integrity management, and MIRMO (management, inspection, repair maintenance, and operation) of offshore terminals. Rhino Craft’s versatility ensures the right craft is used for the job, ensuring safe, efficient, and high quality operations.

Mr. Young continued: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at IDEX and NAVDEX and look forward to demonstrating the significant benefits our innovative Rhino Craft vessels can offer to the offshore oil and gas and coastal protection industries.”
