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 environmen...
We have a specialist range of skimmers and systems to suit the requirements of the industries, including in-tank skimming.
The removal of oil and chemicals from water within the industrial environment is a key requirement – not only due to increased legislation but also because it is considered a dependable and cost effective way to achieve the desired level of water purity.
It can also increase the efficiency of existing installations, such as large scale API oil-water or parallel plate separators, without the...
Leakwise systems can be installed off rivers, oil terminals, oil ports and other locations for the early detection of oil spills. Leakwise can significantly reduce the risk of major environmental contamination.
Coastal & Nearshore
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...
Ocean Visuals Oil in Water Locator (OWL™) System is built on patented Hyper-spectral Laser-Induced Fluorescence (HLIF) LiDAR sensors, capable of detecting hydrocarbons on a molecular level, part-per-million (ppm). OWL™ offers real-time detection, verifica
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...
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,...
Desalinated sea water is a major water source for many countries. These facilities are often built with power generation plant and a major factor for all installations is reliability. This reliability starts with the sea water intake and regardless of the desalination technology (MSF, MED, RO) unplanned plant shut downs due to the ingress of hydrocarbons or a sudden jelly fish attack are absolutely unacceptable.
The DESMI Oil Spill Response segment have many years experience in the design, manufacture, installatio...
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...
- including PSV & Salvage packages
In the rugged and harsh environment of the offshore, DESMI is the market leader for boom, recovery systems, burn kits and storage systems for oil spill response.
The world renowned Ro-Boom, which is available up to 3.5 metres in height, is unsurpassed in its manufacture, operation and longevity. It can be supplied in containerised, standard systems with DNV certification. Ideal for deep water offshore operations.
Ro-Boom continues to set the standards for containment and...
Intelex provides software systems to Oil and Gas companies around the world to help them ensure the safety of their employees, reduce their environmental impacts and manage the quality of their products. Intelex clients use our software to track and report on incidents, spill and release data, nonconformances, audits, safety meetings, permits and a host of other essential information.
In offshore drilling, the safety of both people and the environment is dependent on the constant management of risk. With great public concern and media attention, the safety of offshore drilling for both people and environment, has been widely discussed for many years. Offshore drilling can potentially cause oil spills or disposal of other waste into the ocean, impacting human life and marine life.
Fugro OCEANOR SEAWATCH systems have been installed in numerous countries around the world. They have an impressive operational record from the roughest seas worldwide, the Arctic and the Tropics, to the coastal zones.
Monitor meteorological, oceanographic, water quality conditions
Monitor algae blooms
Improve coastal zone management
Assist with oil spill contingency planning and forecasting
BioSolve Pinkwater is used for cleaning/decontaminating tools and equipment at remediation sites, in refineries, on drilling rigs, following spill cleanup, and in industrial maintenance operations. Generally applied with standard pressure washing equipment. Most oil and tar build-up can be washed away on contact. For more severe contamination, use of a hot water system may yield better results.
LDI laser remote sensing technology provides users with the tools to conduct broad and accurate environmental surveys of both water and ground in stressed environmental zones, which makes our products especially suitable for oil spill response operations. The technology is based on the Laser Induced Fluorescence (LIF) and realized by the Fluorescent Lidar Systems – FLS (LiDAR – Light Detection And Ranging).
