Aqua-Guard has been awarded a 3rd contract from the Canadian Coast Guard for the supply of up to 16 lightweight RBS TRITON 10 oil skimming systems.

Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc of Vancouver, Canada has become the Canadian Coast Guard's prime supplier for oil skimming systems ranging from skimming inside vessel's hulls to shorelines, lakes, rivers, harbours and onboard vessels.

Recently, following an international, open and competitve process, Public Services and Procurement Canada, on behalf of the Canadian Coast Guard, has awarded Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc a contract for the supply of up to sixteen (16) RBS TRITON 10 oil skimming systems.

The new RBS TRITON 10 oil skimming system is designed to be deployed by a minimum of one personnel to recover spilled oil in sheltered and constrained locations, including within stricken vessels. Each system is fully containerized complete with power pack, pump and all accessories required to operate without logistical support for extended periods of time. The RBS TRITON 10 micro oil skimming system is constructed under ISO 9001:2015 and is 100% designed, manufactured and tested in Canada.

Under the Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada has ensured the Canadian Coast Guard now has the equipment it needs to respond to potential oil spill incidents along our coastlines in a timely and efficient manner with the delivery of over 120 RBS TRITON oil skimming systems.
