The NRC Quest, stationed in Astoria, Oregon, is primarily used as a fast response oil spill recovery vessel. Over the next two weeks, however, she will be configured as a wave energy system deployment vessel. At 159-ft in length, 400-tons in displacement, and 1500 horses, she is more than ready for the job!
Captain Rich Cruse will command the Quest for our deployment, which will begin with mobilization in Astoria next week. Once a weather window opens up, the Quest will transit from Astoria to the project site off the coast of Newport. In addition to Captain Cruse, NRC’s Director of Marine Operations Rob Huston, and an experienced team of engineers, equipment operators and shipmates will be onboard to execute the deployment plan.
