After several years of research and development in innovative oil spill collection equipment and intensive study of present day oil spill collection methods, OST was ready to bring a new product to the oil spill clean-up industry. Through years of practical testing and product development of our new, simplified collection/transfer system, we are now able to offer clients the latest technology and one of the most effective and highest performance skimmer boat products currently available worldwide.
Our patented collection system has been developed for ease of use and durability and uses a patented containment/separation design to lift and separate collected oil. This results in the pumping, separation and removal of a greater percentage of oil to water ratio than other oil skimmer products and systems.
The separated oil is able to be pumped from the segregation tank via specialized pumps which have been designed specifically, so that thick sludge and other oil mixtures do not affect the separation and elimination process. In addition, the containment/separation tank has been designed so that cleaning is a safe, quick and simple operation. Our skimmers are designed for use in shallow/sheltered areas, coastal waters & estuaries and open sea.
Through careful analysis of performance and adaptation of our system, we are able to offer a full range of vessel designs and sizes to meet the demands of various applications. We are able to modify existing systems/vessels to work with our technology or alternately offer fully customized builds to meet required uses and specifications.
