A wide range of skimmers have been developed for the coastal environment
For coastal and nearshore use DESMI provides the well known Ro-Boom product but in smaller sizes whilst maintaining the integrity of the larger product offerings. Alternatively, you may want to consider SPI or a lighter weight boom if there are deployment and recovery considerations or restrictions. Under these circumstances, the Troilboom AF (Air Filled) offers a light weight rapid response solution. It is manufactured as standard in bright orange polyurethane fabric offering durability and strength. Top tension wires are also available to enhance performance.
A wide range of combination skimmers have been developed for the coastal environment. These include weir, brush, disc and belt recovery systems with on-board pumps. This results in systems being able to recover a wide range of oils including emulsions and weathered compounds. An example of this is the Terminator skimmer system. This unit also has cutting knives on the inlet side of the on-board DOP pump to slice through trash and debris to ensure the continuous flow of recovered oil.
The recovered oil can be stored in the durable Ro-Tanks which are available in a variety of sizes. Providing the ultimate in a flexible storage solution the Ro-Tanks can be used on the deck of vessels, on land and even on trucks and trailers.
We also have a range of Oil Spill Recovery Vessels (OSRV) such as Pollcat and Pollkitten. These are steel workboats up to 24 metres with in-built oil recovery and storage facilities. Dispersant spraying, debris collection, boom deployment and a host of other equipment can be operated and commanded from on-board the Pollcat.
