M/S "Green Aalesund"
Oil recovery from the shipwreck

"The skimmer has been used as a multi-task vessel during the operation. Oil booms were set and hauled with it, and its high pressure water cannon was used to wash down oil from the shore. A major part of the recovered volume was a mixture of oil, water and debris from the wrecked ship. Operating conditions ranged from quiet archipelago waters to winds of gale force and breaking waves of 1.5 m.

O.E. Mæland, Harbour Captain and Operation Manager, Karmsund Port Authorities


M/S Rocknes:
Oil recovery from the shipwreck

"This was about collecting heavy fuel oil (after several days in the sea). The reports we received said that OP OIL SKIMMER™ was a very impressing oil collecting vessel. Some even said "the only thing that did the job".

Jon Magne Jacobsen, Harbour Captain - Statoil Mongstad


M/S Princess of Scandinavia:
120 tons of oil collected from the port

"There were considerable amounts of debris that would have caused problems for the traditional skimmers, but the OP OIL SKIMMER™ performed to our satisfaction.

Odd A. Salvesen, Port Director, Kristiansand Port Authorities

Field testing in Kristiansand and Oslo, Norway

"The OP OIL SKIMMER™ comes in very handy in the event of acute oil spill because the collection of oil can start immediately.
