Thanks for the explanation, David. I am always happy for the opportunity to learn something new.

The first two (EAGLE LOUISIANA and EAGLE TEXAS) were newbuild shuttle tankers went straight to Dubai for conversion in 2011-2013. They continue to trade as shuttle tankers to US ports, but can have the oil capture modules reinstalled in just nine crane lifts over five days.

There was a useful discussion on the first two vessels at
(though there was some misunderstanding about the tankers being at Setubal, Portugal - they were not oil trading voyages, but had been sent for their 5-year drydocking)

Up to now the MCVs are a purely industry-funded project, so it would be interesting to know what contract the US Government has initiated.

Not really sure about this "Modular Capture Vessel" thing; this is a "regular" Suezmax-sized next-gen shuttle tanker, advanced in a way that it's LNG powered, and can also use liquid volatile organic compounds as fuel (LVOC, hence the two different green reservoirs on her deck).

"Modular Capture Vessels" are supposed to be converted oil tankers.

Or am I missing something?

This is what AET called "Modular Capture Vessel" which is capable to collect spill (in case) from oil field in Gulf of Mexico. They have won a contract from US Government. First two ships were converted in Dubai in 2013.
