They seem to be known as autonomous rescue and recovery vehicle and this one  appears to be registered under
the flag of convenience of George Town Cayman Islands

Delta launched one of the largest RIBís in the world, with this model at the cutting edge of RIB technology.

Designated the AARC (Autonomous Rescue & Recovery Craft) this Delta 19m has many novel features. The sponsons are a hybrid construction, the shafts are carbon fibre permitting the engine placement in the optimum position without the weight penalty of steel shafts, and the cabin is a double decker.

The ARRC is an integral part of BP's tescue initiative for their North Sea platforms which will provide enhanced Rescue & Recovery arrangements. In an emergency, helicopters will be deployed from strategically located platforms with the ARRC acting as the marine element. Each ARRC will have a crew of six including a fully trained paramedic and is capable of operating in seas of 7 m significant wave height.

In the event of an emergency rescue, the ARRC has the facilities on board to house 21 survivors in comfort and to perform essential triage and basic life saving initiatives including Cannulation, Intubation and Haemorrhage Control. In addition the ARRC has a clear aft deck area that enables a "Helivac" of seriously injured survivors to be completed in the severest of sea states.

Full details as these links:

Defo  Port Edgar
Looks like its the old jetty that had a couple of type 14 frigates and a coupleof ton class sweepersfrom the fishery protection squadron. Plusa couple of minehunter conversions.
I spent 64/65 as part of the base maintenance team that serviced them
