In the UK, recent offshore disasters have called into question the ability of standby vessels to adequately perform the tasks assigned to them. New legislation that will impose higher standards upon the industry is therefore expected. Standby vessels will in all probability be required to have two means of propulsion, and the standard of accommodation for survivors will have to be upgraded. It will also be required that every offshore installation have its own standby vessel. The ways in which standby vessel companies look to capitalize on their investments as a result of the expected legislation are examined.
