Dutch term or phrase: oliebestrijdingsvaartuig
" [...] er wordt verzocht prioriteit te geven aan het beschikbaar stellen van een oliebestrijdingsvaartuig."

The text is a description of a large ship getting stuck on a sand bank. It is unknown if the container ship is carrying oil, but the authorities want to call in an "oliebestrijdingsvaartuig" just in case.

Thank you very much for your suggestions!
