Bureau of Meteorology Re-Supply Voyage
North Marine holds a long-term contract to provide the re-supply service for the remote Bureau of Meteorology weather station, located at Willis Island in Queensland.
While located in Queensland, Willis Island is an offshore destination and is classed as an international voyage. All Border Force regulatory standards are adhered to.
The bi-annual voyage covers 900 round kilometres (485 nautical miles).
The remote re-supply service includes the transfer of fuel to power the weather station, hydrogen gas for the weather balloons, change-over of the personnel manning the station, and the provision of all goods and food for the following 6 months.
The offshore support vessel ‘Gulf Explorer’ is perfectly adapted to complete such a voyage. The Gulf Explorer has the long-range capability, ample storage capacity and a walk-in fridge and freezer. She also boasts enough deck space to transport the large quantities of equipment along with beach vehicles for transporting goods upon arrival, a fuel hold to supply the island and a landing barge for operations.
