GRN Welcomes Back Alaska Clean Seas

The Global Response Network is pleased to welcome back  Alaska Clean Seas, a former member of the GRN, returning by invitation.

ACS has been actively preventing and responding to Arctic incidents for over 40 years – supporting industry exploration, production, and the transportation of oil through the 800 mile trans-Alaska pipeline.  As a result of their dedication, professionalism, and innovation, the not-for-profit ACS mission set has grown to include fire-fighting and emergency medical response personnel and wildlife responses for most of their members including hazing, capture/relocation, along with recovery of orphaned bears, birds, musk ox, wolverines, wolfs, geese, and ravens.

Most recently ACS has developed and fielded a UAV program to support their eleven member companies during responses, prevention activities, and significantly reduced risk and cost during industrial applications.  Onshore (tundra), nearshore, and offshore, ACS is a recognised industry safety leader, successfully and routinely operating in the most environmentally challenging conditions in the world.

President and General Manager Barkley Lloyd, representing the ninety-one employees of ACS, will be taking a seat in the Executive Committee as of November 2019.

The GRN/EC and Operational Teams are looking forward to the contributions of the Alaska Clean Seas organisation.
