AMPOL Wins Coast Guard Contract

Monday, March 14, 2011

NEW IBERIA, La. (March 14, 2011) – The Oil Stop Division of the American Pollution Control Corp. (AMPOL), the industry leader in oil spill response and total environmental solutions, has been granted a Phase 2 contract for development and testing of its OSBORS (Oil Stop Bottom Oil Recovery System) submerged oil recovery system by the United States Coast Guard Research and Development Branch.

“Working with the United States Coast Guard Research and Development Branch is a great honor,” said CEO Kirk Headley. “This partnership validates our status as world leaders positioned on the cutting edge of oil spill recovery technology.”

The OSBORS is a specialized package of equipment designed to remove oil that has settled on the seafloor.  The heart of the system is the Tornado Motion Technologies (TMT) SUBDREDGE. The SUBDREDGE is a remote controlled, track driven vehicle that is equipped with TMT’s EDDY Pump.  Additional top-side support equipment is included for separating recovered oil and in-situ treating of water and solids.

Phase 2 of the contract involves final design and planning for live testing at the Bureau of Ocean Energy, Management, Regulations and Enforcement’s (BOEMRE) OHMSETT facility in Leonardo, New Jersey in late 2011.

The Oil Stop Division, which is currently certified to the ISO 9001:2008 standard, manufactures equipment for oil spill control, water pollution control, and specialty items for mining, marine construction and seawater desalination facilities. 

AMPOL offers oil spill response, tank cleaning, confined space entry services, naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM) treatment and storage, lead and asbestos abatement services, insulation services, hazardous material (HAZ-MAT) emergency cleanup, soil remediation and demolition services, and state-of-the-art oil spill control products.
