Oil Spill Vessel Delivered to Spain

October 20, 2003

In the wake of the Prestige disaster RO-CLEAN DESMI and its Madrid representative SENTEC have delivered its third specialized oil spill vessel to Spain. These vessels are working at oil terminals in Algeciras, Ceuta and Huelva and provide a multipurpose workboat that is able to recover, store and transport oil as well as other general duties. The Algeciras vessel has already been in service in several incidents and proven it's abilities. The POLLKITTEN is a versatile dynamic oil skimmer vessel ideally suited for sheltered terminal and harbor operations. This vessel is ready to go into action at a moments notice, oil recovery can begin immediately by simply driving the boat over the oil slick. The integrated rope mops are simply lowered into the water and will start recovering oil once circulating. Oil can be recovered while the POLLKITTEN is stationary or moving ahead at speeds up to 4 knots, and stored on board until ready for transfer. This steel craft is equipped with onboard diesel hydraulic power pack and oil transfer pump. Propulsion is by two inboard diesel engines providing excellent maneuverability and speed in excess of 6 knots. Designed by RO-CLEAN DESMI the POLLKITTEN follows a long line of oil skimming vessels produced over the last 20 years for oil terminals and harbors around the world.
