Oil Spill Response

Oil Spill

Oily spills are an inevitable by-product of oil production, primary processing, refining, petroleum storage tanks and oil pipelines, and leads to environmental pollution, as well as negative economic and social consequences.

Emergency situations, involving oil spills are best, and often easier prevented, rather than responded to.

Experience shows that despite the fact that companies undertake all possible measures to build safe and reliable pipelines, no one can give a 100% guarantee that oil spills will not occur. Preventative measures also require specialized equipment such as permanent containment booms.

Despite the recent governmental policy geared towards preventing and containing oil spills, this problem is still relevant, and requires special attention towards studying the methods of localizing, and containing oil spills, as well as towards the development of in-depth response plans.

The equipment offered can be used to clean oil spill on-land, in open waters and marshes.

In addition, the equipment can function under adverse weather conditions and deal with various types of spills and oil products.

A wide range of auxiliaries allows optimizing the equipment packages, and widens the range of carried out operations.
