Oil Pollution Vessel ‘Force 5 - Multi-Role Counter Pollution Vessel’

 
 

oil pollution oil containment
  • Recovers from 20 tonnes an hour of oil or floating chemicals.
  • Force 5 equipment is tailor made depending on where it is used and what it is used for.
  • All equipment can be installed using a special quick release system so that the vessel can be used for other purposes.
  • OPEC can supply custom built vessels and all ancilliary equipment if needed.

The Force 5, counter pollution vessel is made up of specially designed retrofitted oil recovery equipment so that the vessel can be used cost-effectively for a multitude of purposes.

  • General work boat duties
  • Buoy handling
  • Fire Fighting
  • Emergency oil spill response

Force 5 is designed for use in harbours, docks and Estuaries to respond to general spills, such as drainage from factories and other outlets, ships slops and general pollution from fish oils, lubricating oils, diesel fuels etc, which occur in the docks and harbours. Force 5 is also equipped to respond to larger oil spills in docks and harbours, recovering in excess of 20 tonnes of oil an hour.

 

Primary Equipment

E-Series Mop Skimmer System

 

Based on the highly successful E-Series system an E-900 mop skimmer is fitted to a catamaran work boat. Can be used with or without booms to corral the oil.

The E-900 is stored above a hinged trap door which is roped to the safety railing. When the mop is deployed onto the water surface the guide rollers are set into position using a lever.

 

OM-Series Mop Skimmer System

 

An OM12 (Ocean Mop) skimming module is deployed from the side of the vessel via an onboard crane to collect the oil on the water surface. Used in conjunction with booms, this is a vertically deployed ‘multi-mop’ skimmer system. It is self-contained with a metal storage container for storing skimmer heads, an oil transfer pump, a diesel driven power pack, an operator console and all umbilicals - including hydraulic hoses and oil transfer hoses and clips.


Series 5000 Chain Belt System

 

A series 5000 chain belt skimming device used in a very similar way to the E-Series module for use in extreme conditions where the oil is very viscous and heavily emulsified, typically in cold coastal regions.

 

Secondary Equipment

Booms

Booms can be stored on deck as free standing rolls or on powered boom reels. On a catamaran vessel retractable boom arms are fitted at each bow to increase the encounter rate. These consist of a rigid tubular arm which at its outward end supports a length of flexible floating boom, which deflects oil to the hull tunnel and the recovery equipment. This allows the vessel to operate at the most efficient speed for recovery purposes and yet provide a satisfactory oil encounter rate.

Deck Crane

A folding hydraulic deck crane can be built into the vessel with a lifting capacity of 2500 kg at a radius of 4.5m. This is sufficient for the vessel to service itself if no shore facilities are available.

The crane would be supplied with hydraulic power from a main engine driven pump.

The crane is an integral part of the Force 5 vessel.

Flexible Floating Storage Tanks

“Flexitanks” towed floating storage tanks enable a recovery vessel to operate independently for long periods by allowing a number of these Flexitanks to be stowed on deck and then floated and filled as required, they are then buoyed off when full for collection at a later time.

They are available in a variety of sizes but the most practical and cost effective for this size of vessel are the 5, 9 and 12.5 cubic metre tanks.

 

As well as flexible storage tanks the catamaran hulls can provide built in tanks to store up to 8 cubic metres of on board storage in each hull. This feature is ideal when clearing smaller spills.

 

Dispersant Spray Equipment

Provision is made in the design of the vessel for fitting sockets suitable for locating removable spray booms.

These spray booms are equipped with wide angle, controlled droplet size, spray nozzles and they can be of alternate lengths to give a swathe width of either 18 m or 27 m.

The pump set is self-contained with its own drive motor and is arranged to dispense either straight dispersant or a sea water diluted concentrate.

The dispersant will be stored in standard 200 litre drums on deck or in flexible storage tanks.
