30' Rapid Response Oil Skimming Vessel

Kvichak Marine Industries has recently delivered a 30' Rapid Response Oil Skimming Vessel to Argus Limited of Rockville, MD to provide front line spill response capability in the Russian Federation.

 

The rapid-response, shallow-water vessel is ideally suited for use on oil spills in waterways, bays, and harbors.  The all-aluminum skimmer is 30’–3” long by 9’-8” wide with a draft of 2’-6" and is easily trailerable.  Powered by twin 90hp outboards, the skimmer has a response speed of up to 17 knots and features an enclosed 2-person pilothouse for operator comfort. Adaptable to a variety of marine spill scenarios, this highly specialized vessel works well in many recovery configurations, from free skimming through towed-boom applications, and is able to recover a very wide range of spills from light sheens to very viscous weathered oil products.  The skimmer’s oil recovery system includes a KVICHAK/MARCO Cl-1 Filterbelt oil skimming module, a KVICHAK/MARCO U-040 Capsulpump offload system with 50’ hose, and a recovered oil capacity of over 1,200 gallons.  The recovered oil tank configuration allows segregation of small volume spills to simplify post-spill decontamination.  Onboard hydraulic power is supplied by an under-deck diesel HPU.
