Mavi Deniz is a market leader/world’s largest producer in the design and manufacture of multipurpose offshore oil recovery vessels.

Mavi Deniz developed the unique Sea Barracuda, a multi-purpose offshore oil spill recovery vessel. Multi-Purpose Offshore Oil Spill Recovery Vessel ( OSRV ) can be supplied already fitted with all the equipment necessary to implement efficient and quick oil cleanup operations at offshore seas.

The versatile OSRV can be fitted with various types of response equipment so that it can utilize in many different applications, including boom deployment, firefighting, anchor/ buoy handling, towing, general workboat duties, monitoring, dispersant spraying, oil recovery, oily waste storage, and disposal of micro-pollutants from the offshore sea areas.

Sea Barracuda; The offshore type,  oil spill recovery vessel collects oils automatically from the sea with its rigid sweeping arms systems up to 5 sea state conditions. This uniquely designed, purpose-built offshore oil spill recovery vessel is the only vessel capable of recovering oils from light diesel through highly viscous crudes ( 1,000,000 Cst ).

International Maritime Organization announcing a strategy to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to zero by the end of this century, marine environmental regulations have been tightened worldwide, and the implementation of emission control areas has begun to affect vessel operations. Mavi Deniz has successfully started new technologies for emission control regulations by developing dual-fuel solutions and cleaner green power technologies. Mavi Deniz’s Green Power Options; Solar Energy System, Battery Power System, Hydrogen Fuel Cell System, LNG System can fully integrate to Offshore Oil Spill Recovery Vessel including deck equipment and propulsion system.

  • Powered by LPG System


  • Sea Barracuda can collect oil spills with its rigid sweeping arms skimmer system to recover all oil types’ viscosities from the sea.
  • Offshore Oil Recovery Vessel Collection Rate ; 150 tons/hour – 200 tons/hour – 300 tons/hour.
  • The dispersant spray system fits for applying the chemical dispersion agent through articulated arms mounted on both sides.
  • OSD ( Oil Spill Detection ) System for detecting/tracking oil spills on the water.
  • Thermal Oil Heating System fits on the vessel for heating the tanks.
  • The Offshore Oil Spill Recovery Vessel has a double hull and double bottom.
  • An optional boom reel can be used to store and deploy a variety of differently sized booms or Fi-Fi 1 monitors for firefighting and stern A-Frame Crane for buoy handling operations or towing winch for anchor handling duties.

The Oil Spill Detection ( OSD ) System’s primary objectives are to detect oil spills on the sea surface and to track the oil spill over time. The system provides help both for those supervising oil fields and those in charge of cleanup operations. The OSD system may operate in complete darkness or fog, 24 hours a day, thus enabling recovery and skimming operations when the visibility is poor. Ability to detect oil spills of at least 100 liters in wind conditions and sea states corresponding to Beaufort’s scale 2-6. Sea Barracuda has been specially conceived to operate in open-seas or offshore activities. OSRV has excellent sea-going qualities, which allow the vessel to reach the same high level of performance in open waters. To avoid oil spots on the sea surface being disturbed by the swell and the vessel’s wake, extra care has been taken in designing a smooth sailing hull.

Mavi Deniz’s Offshore Oil Spil Recovery Vessels can be seen in use all over the world.
