Aqua-Guard's Global Offshore Reach:

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 30 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 TRITON oil skimming head to recovery a range of light to ultra heavy oils.

Aqua-Guard designs, manufactures and supplies state of the art URO 300 and URO 600 offshore skimming systems from their various facilities in Vancouver, Canada to countries around the world.
