NorCan Marine Inc.
Russ Compton, Owner and Founding President
NorCan owns crews and charters the NorCan Marine 222 ERRSV Emergency Response Rescue and Support Vessel.
“As we move forward, NorCan will train all our crews and operate and charter the Norcan 222 on a global world-wide basis,” says Russ Compton. “Out of our Montague office, we provide integrated logistics support. Our crews will be fully trained on PEI at Holland College, at Aspin Kemp facilities, and at the UPEI Faculty of Sustainable Design Engineering.
“We have a lot of innovative technology on board:
- NorCan Egress Rescue Modetm is an intrinsically safe mode that allows us to enter into hazardous environments and recover personnel at risk.NorCan Plow the Waves tm is an innovative open ocean spill and waste recovery mode to help clean up our stressed oceans.
- NorCan Auto Seatm is a sustainable catering concept.
- Aspin Kemp and Associates’ Hybrid Drive is a cornerstone on the NorCan 222 ERRSV.
“Looking forward, oil and gas will define 40 to 60 percent of our charter market. The remaining 40 to 60 percent will be found in the emerging markets of renewable offshore energy, humanitarian response, emergency towing, search & rescue, anti-piracy, and fast military patrol vessels.
“On the green side and the value-added side, we can deliver fuel savings of 35 to 50 percent. Also, 90+ percent of greenhouse gas emissions are taken out of the environment. This work is being done through the different technologies and efficiencies we have added with help from companies like Aspin Kemp and Associates, Servogear, and Mecmar.
“Because our vessel is two to three times faster than our competitors, we can replace two or three vessels in every operation. In one Asian operation, 13 vessels were replaced with one of ours. “Norway, the UAE, and UK are a big part of our business. We have a Strategic Alliance with Norway, and Innovation Norway is a big supporter. NCE Maritime Clean Tech is a very well-established clean supercluster in Norway. We are the first Canadian company to be part of this supercluster. In The UAE we have identified Lamprell as a Strategic Partner.”
