    Oil spill recovery

    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.

    Port, Harbours & Terminals

    Ports, harbours and terminals demand special consideration as the equipment requirements can vary significantly. This could range from the simple, inexpensive environmentally friendly ‘A’ Boom to OilFence, a rugged asymmetric boom. OilFence can boast in excess of 15 years of service in permanent deployment applications and due to its massive reserve buoyancy, it can support ‘fish-net’ suspended from the boom itself. Many of the recovery systems in the nearshore and shoreline segment can be employed in ports, harbours and terminals. However, we also offer the versatile ‘Mop’ systems which can be installed to influence a large surface area. Indeed, ‘Mop’ skimmers have also proven themselves in the open waters, oil pits and industrial applications.

    Beach & Shoreline

    For oil spill response in beach and shoreline environments DESMI offers a whole host of equipment to handle any eventuality. The smaller sizes of Ro-Boom and Ro-Beach are unequalled in application and robustness while the range of lightweight Troilbooms can meet the lower cost expectations. In addition the famous Termite and Mini-Max weir skimmers are proven performers in recovery. Recovery systems are also available in vacuum designs from the well-known Ro-Vac to the highly portable Ro-Vac Mini – the latter even with its own transfer pump system to divert the pollutant. Although the Ro-Tank can also be used on land or the back of a trailer, the Troil range of open top tanks offer the perfect solution for storage of the recovered oil. These tanks are very lightweight and need no special tools to erect. The tanks offer a wide selection of capacities – indeed , the smaller units are ideal for decontamination duties.

    Fast Water, Rivers & Lakes

    Oil spill response operations are notably difficult in rivers with strong current. In addition, when considering response times for river spills in relation to the mobilisation time required for conventional land- or vessel-based boom systems, a timely response is often a logistic impossibility especially in the more remote regions. Therefore, equipment must be readily at hand near the sites of operation and pre-rigged lines, cables and mooring areas are a must. Selection of a good location to deploy the oil containment system is dependent upon prior planning and understanding of the currents. Drift studies, river run off histories, tidal current tables and charts, plus computer modeling are all useful tools to understand the flow patterns and to develop recovery strategies. Reading the currents and flow patterns require practice and understanding of the hydrodynamics involved.
