Coastal & Near-shore
For coastal and near-shore use DESMI provides the well known Ro-Boom 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 lightweight 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 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.
Although considered less challenging than offshore, the coastal & nearshore environment has its share
of challenges and equipment demands
We have a range of Oil Spill Recovery Vessels (OSRV) such as the Pollcat and Pollkitten. These are steel workboats up to 24 metres / 78.74 ft 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 the Pollcat.
With our RIB (rigid inflatable boat) you can easily inspect permanent or semi-permanent boom installations – and they can be towed or repositioned without damage. The RIB can even offer some first response oil recovery duties with the correct equipment.
