Award $860,000 Contract

To Seaward Int'l For

Saudi Harbor Protection

Seaward International, Inc., Falls Church,

Va., has been awarded an $860,000 contract for the installation, supervision, and train- ing of an oil-spill protection program for the

Jeddah Oil Refinery harbor area in Saudi

Arabia. The refinery is operated by Petro- min, an agency of the Saudi Arabian Gov- ernment, which is responsible for the de- velopment of oil, gas, and mineral resources.

The systems will handle a wide range of spill types, from small leaks that collect in pockets along the shore, to larger spills from ruptured transfer hoses in the berth- ing areas. These systems include: perma- nent oil boom and skimmer systems in- stalled downwind of the tanker berthing areas to capture large spills; fast deploy- ment harbor boom for additional contain- ment of large spills; a small portable skim- mer, to be used with a vacuum truck; and sorbent pads for cleaning up small spills along the shore.

Each system will be designed and pro- cured by Seaward International and in- stalled under Seaward supervision. Seaward also will train key refinery personnel in the use of the equipment. This program will be completed early in 1982.
