Van Heck revealed its newest world premiere, a complete pump system that enables the controlled, contained, fast oil recovery after incorrect or off-spec fueling and in the event of grounding or calamity at sea.

The pump, named Sea Trophy, ensures a fast, easy and well controlled solution for the removal of oil which will limit, or even eliminate any or all economic and environmental damages, not to mention the possible depredation of company image. Van Heck’s Sea Trophy underlines the motto “intervene, but not interfere” and greatly increases the preparedness for any unforeseen situations, be it off-spec oil recovery or salvage.

Van Heck encapsulates its innovation with the slogan “There is a world to win.” Everyone loses when oil is unintentionally spilt. This unique pump system can help turn the tide. Van Heck believes the Sea Trophy to be an invaluable tool for ship owners, salvors, coastguard and emergency first responders but also for those behind the scene, namely the oil companies and insurance brokers. Look at the conduct of the maritime industry in comparison to the fragile environment, especially the underwater and coastal ecology. Consider the current response plans for oil spills. Think about reducing or eliminating economic and material damages to capital goods, not to mention the conservation of company image. Contemplate the eradication any environmental impact by preventing an oil spill or ship casualty. The investment in this innovation does not stand in comparison to both the environmental and economical gains which can be achieved if the unthinkable should happen. The Green and Easy Oil Recovery system makes a ship salvor friendly and helps to provide an answer to new and upcoming shipping regulations such as the Polar Code.
