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.
