Providing mitigation and support measures to the very real and present risks posed by migrant activity.
The situation offshore Libya is complex, with the migrant situation intensifying over recent years. In extreme cases, vessels have been hijacked and forced to sail to European countries. If operating offshore Libya for a sustained period, then the likelihood of being involved in a migrant rescue or related issue is high. The planning and coordination of a potential rescue and the subsequent considerations of crew safety, as well as migrant control and welfare, is essential preparation for any vessel operating in these waters. Castor Vali offers the necessary pre-voyage assessment, vessel preparation and on-board consultancy to mitigate these risks.
