Alnmaritec Limited, which is recognised as one of the UK's leading specialist boat builders, has recently delivered two new oil pollution control boats for operation in Asia.

The new ‘Wave Skimmer’ class boats were delivered by Alnmaritec earlier this year to Elastec American Marine who also supplied all of the oil recovery and storage equipments on board. These boats follow on from the successful Wave Provider class boat that was delivered by Alnmaritec to Elastec (a major manufacturer of oil spill equipment) in 2010, also for operations in Asia.

The innovative design was developed in conjunction with Elastec; it has a hydraulically operated garbage scoop at the bow for floating waste collection which can deposit up to two cubic metres into a removable skip on deck. In addition to trash recovery the boats have proprietary dynamic oil collection chambers matched with Elastec skimmers for oil recovery. The boats are fitted with 5m3 of recovered oil storage capacity together with a ballast system that ensures their trim remains optimal at all stages of the oil recovery process.  They are fitted with inboard diesels driving twin waterjets which provide excellent manoeuvrability as well as a very shallow draught for operating close to beaches and ramps. The boats are very robustly built and capable of taking a substantial cargo on deck (in place of the skip) which makes them exceptionally versatile harbour craft.
