A commissioning and training drill was supervised by Aqua-Guard’s top Latin American oil spill response technicians with participants from local authorities along with Aqua-Guard’s local agents

Aqua-Guard’s team and drill participants launched oil spill response equipment from a bridge into a river simulating an oil spill upstream. The equipment included an Aqua-Guard RBS TRITON™ 35 oil skimming system, oil containment booms, dual oil transfer pump systems and various unique accessories.  These systems were deployed from an Aqua-Guard multi-purpose oil spill response trailer via a self-contained crane system.  Boom and oil skimming systems were lowered into the river to demonstrate Aqua-Guard's equipment unique ability to both contain and recover oil during this mock exercise.
