- For use in docks, harbours and close inshore clean-up operations.
- The package is self-contained in a metal storage container for easy handling and storing of the system when not in use.
- The ocean mop system is based on the highly successful e-series range of products.
- It can vary in size and performance to suit individual needs recovering in excess of 30 tonnes an hour of oil.
- The opec mop handles any debris on the water surface.
- Use of a hydraulic crane enables great versatility in cleaning oily water.
The OM Series II Skimming System
is designed to be deployed from vessels of opportunity
and any vessel equipped with a hydraulic crane of
adequate capacity may be used.
Skimmer head (number varies depending
on desired performance)
Diesel driven power pack
Oil transfer pump
Umbilicals - hydraulic hoses, oil transfer hoses and clips
The SKIMMER HEAD which uses OPEC mops
is deployed vertically onto the water. This skimmer head
is suspended from the crane with the mops allowed to settle
on the surface in the product which has to be recovered.
The mop drive units are powered by variable speed hydraulic
motors fed from a power pack.
The POWER PACK is placed on the
deck of the operating vessel and connected to the
skimmer head via flexible hydraulic pipes. The power
pack consists of a self regulating hydraulic piston
pump directly coupled to an air cooled diesel engine
which is equipped with electric starting facility,
it also has a recoil hand start capability. The power
pack also supplies power to an oil transfer pump.
A TRANSFER PUMP is provided to pump the
recovered oil from the skimmer sump to bulk storage on the
vessel. The pump is connected to the skimmer head via a
flexible suction hose provided with quick release connectors.
The pump is driven by a variable speed hydraulic motor.
The skimmer head and pump are controlled
by directional valves and flow control valves mounted on
a separate OPERATOR CONSOLE which may be positioned in the
most convenient position for operating the system which
is usually close to the ships handrail. The pump is bi-directional
and it may be used to pump in both directions if required,
for instance when emptying the temporary storage container.
The skimmer must NOT be operated in reverse when the mops
The complete system is supplied
in a steel storage CONTAINER which provides protection
and security when the system is not in use. The power
pack and pump may be left on the base of the container
during operations if desired. The top cover of the
container is designed to be used for temporary recovered
oil storage when removed and inverted, and a disposable
liner is provided so that the interior of the cover
does not become fouled with recovered oil.
