The Offshore Support and Assistance Multipurpose Vessel (BSAH) is a particularly versatile and robust ship.

Designed to perfom long lasting operations in EEZ waters, the BSAH can fulfil civilian missions such as pollution response, logistic support, assistance, search and rescue. It can also be a support to military missions for special operations in surveillance and law enforcement at sea.

The BSAH is equipped with a working boat and a RHIB, a crane for loading and unloading containers and can accommodate divers, carry weapons and ammunitions, provide support to a submarine and operate an anti-pollution barrier.
