Aqua-Guard’s Offshore URO Oil Skimming Systems Installed on OSRVs Around the Globe
Posted on October 25, 2017 by Nigel Bennett | 2036 Views
As oil exploration continues further offshore, Aqua-Guard's large offshore oil skimming systems (UROs) have been standard equipment onboard OSRVs around the globe for the past 10 years
Aqua-Guard has had a presence in such offshore markets as Brazil since the mid 1980's. Aqua-Guard's local technical and service crews are ready at a moments notice to respond to the needs of their many Brazilian clients.
One of the vessels, ASGAARD SOPHIA, has been patrolling offshore waters in Brasil for over 24 months and is complete with an Aqua-Guard URO 300 oil skimming system and oil containment boom.
These vessels are under contract with Petrobras and the URO 300 system is involved in monthly oil spill response drills in order to maintain crew and equipment readiness.
Aqua-Guard's URO systems have the unique ability over the competition by using only a single patented RBS TRITONTM oil skimming head to recovery a range of light to ultra heavy oils.
Aqua-Guard provides a range of state-of-the-the-art oil spill response solutions including the URO Skimmer System and the RBS TRITON™ range of oil skimmers—all built on Aqua-Guard’s patented RBS TRITON™ technology to deliver some of the highest efficiency and recovery rates in the industry.
