SERVS SAYS GOODBYE – AND HELLO – TO THE FORT LISCUM
This year, Alyeska welcomed its newest member to the SERVS fleet, a 49-foot, self-propelled belt skimmer, the Fort Liscum. Built by Kvichak Marine in Seattle, this vessel replaced a 47-year-old skimmer of the same name. It arrived in Valdez in January, but training was delayed due to COVID measures. On Monday, November 9, SERVS personnel held a demonstration for regulators and stakeholders in front of the public dock in Valdez. During an oil spill, the Fort Liscum would be supported by work boats pulling boom to concentrate the oil for more effective collection.
