Multi-Year Contracts with the Canadian Coast Guard

Posted on November 30, 2021 by Nigel Bennett  |  237 Views

Aqua-Guard Spill Response Inc. is nearing the completion of multi-year contracts to produce and supply compact/portable, oleophilic oil skimming systems to various Coast Guard bases and facilities across Canada

Under the Oceans Protection Plan, the Government of Canada has ensured the Canadian Coast Guard has the equipment it needs to respond to potential oil spill incidents along our coastlines in a timely and efficient manner.

This equipment includes Aqua-Guard's RBS TRITONTM oil skimming systems which are on constant standby and can be deployed quickly to recover oil in protected waters and the interior spaces of small vessels. 

To date, CCG has procured the following equipment from Aqua-Guard:

46 x RBS TRITONTM 20 Oil Skimming Systems

67 x RBS TRITONTM 60 Oil Skimming Systems

Each system includes a dedicated skimmer head (c/w brush, drum and disc recovery modules), a diesel/hydraulic power pack, an oil transfer pump, a custom aluminum storage box and all vital accessories.

In addition, 36 separate standalone diesel/hydraulic power packs/oil transfer pumps have been procured from Aqua-Guard for operations outside of oil skimming.

“It has been an extreme pleasure working closely with the Canadian Coast Guard and Public Services and Procurement Canada. We are very proud that 100% of the design, manufacturing and assembly takes place in Vancouver, Canada. The equipment supply and training provided to CCG's bases ensures protection of our local environment and waterways."

- Cameron Janz, CEO
