As the exploration for oil and gas enters areas of greater environmental vulnerability, the need for proven, reliable and robust equipment is doubly important. DESMI continues to answer this challenge with existing as well as specially developed oil spill recovery systems to operate in the most difficult and harsh environments known to man. This equipment is known as the ARCTIC range. This is a special tool kit of systems to enable you to successfully contain, recover and store hydrocarbons in the Arctic environment. In addition, we offer a range of ‘fail safe’ fire booms for use in controlled burning of oil in ice.

Hydroelectric dams produce electric power by harnessing the force of the water flowing through the dam. There are numerous sources for oil spillage:
- The hydroelectric turbines are lubricated by lubrication oils.
- The very large water control valves are normally hydraulic powered and are lubricated with various greases and oils.
- Vehicles including fork lifts, trucks, etc., can spill oils and fuels.
Any accidental spillage of oil or grease or intentional wash down water containing minor amounts of oils, greases, and detergents must be collected and treated before discharge to the river. These fluids along with any water leaks are collected in sumps in the dam and are regularly pumped out. In many cases, the volume of water is substantial.
