Project: Lana Rose

CEO of Resolve Marine Group Joe Farrell came to us with a simple yet highly significant project when his newly acquired vessel, Lana Rose came under our management in October 2019.

As founder of Mission Resolve, Joe Farrell’s goal has been not only to provide humanitarian aid but also to clean and conserve our ocean habitats as quick and as efficiently as possible.

The global effects of our disposable culture has caused much damage, significantly in the disposal of plastics into our oceans, and the rate at which it continues made for no hesitation in Maritime Management joining Joe’s team. From Oct 2019 our crew and engineers have worked to bring this ship back into service completing re-classification with DNVGL and re-flagging her to St. Vincent and The Grenadines. This was all achieved by March 2020 but due to COVID 19 the vessel has been unable to embark on it’s important fundraising and awareness cruises.

Despite this, the vessel is in ‘warm’ layup condition with a skeleton crew ready to mobilise at short notice.

The Mission Resolve team have worked hard with Maritime and international education partners which may give a new additional direction for the Lana Rose. Check our blog posts for updates.

Emergency Response – Lana Rose’s utmost responsibility is being available to ships should any crises or alerts arise. With response warehouses ranging from Singapore, Shanghai, Gibraltar, Mumbai, Rotterdam, Cape Town, Florida, Alabama, Alaska, Lana Rose has been equipped to rapidly respond to vessels that have grounded to towing vessels with engine malfunction all the way up to firefighting tankers and other commericial vessels that experience high alert situations.

Salvage and Wreck Removal – Combined with connections to experienced salvage masters, naval architects, engineers and divers,  Lana Rose has tackled a number of successful salvage missions; from sunken container ships in New Zealand to cruise ships in The Arctic. Round the clock, on time, on budget and safe removal of wrecks is of Lana Roses utmost interest.


Maritime Training –  With all the potentially hazardous missions under Lana Rose’s command, it is vital to properly train everyone involved. That is why Mission Resolve offers courses related to Shipboard Fire & Safety and navigation, resource management and safety courses all of which are effectively undertaken using Full Mission Bridge and Engine simulators. To date 35000 mariners and officers have been trained under Lana Rose.

Offshore Wind Services – with decades of experience, Mission Resolve has delivered Jones-Act Compliant, Walk-to-Work (WTW) vessel services in the delivery and construction of offshore wind farms. Also to be stationed near these projects allow for a doubled response to any emergencies associated with previously mentioned services.

Oil Spill Response – Lana Rose is a shining example of helping vessels meet the requirements established through OPA90 and OSRO to respond to oil spill disasters as well as prevention and overall preparedness should oil spills arise. Warehouses linked with Lana Rose maintain USCG OSRO  classification  harbour booms, offshore booms, scrubbers, oil spill tanks, skimmers, absorbents, dispersant, high-pressure washers, oil collection pumps. All of this proprietary state of the art technology under Resolve’s management allow a smoother and efficient way to deal with these crises.
