SeaHow Skimmer System

Posted by Irina Tabakina

New SeaHow skimmer systems – designed to collect both light and heavy oils efficiently – can be implemented in almost any work boat, starting with vessels only six meters long. SeaHow operates one of northern Europe’s largest fleets of oil spill response vessels, and its hands-on experience of more than 30 years was central to the three years in developing its own line of SeaHow skimmers.
SeaHow skimmers are suitable for vessels from 6m long to the largest vessels used in off-shore OSR. Skimmers are designed to be easy to deploy and operate, making it possible to turn virtually any work boat or larger vessel into an OSR vessel in case of an accident. “Most of the funds available for OSR equipment acquisition is today used for purchasing vessels, leaving little money for the OSR equipment itself,” says Jari Partanen, CEO of SeaHow. “By using SeaHow skimmers you can use your existing vessel fleet and direct the investment funding to the OSR equipment itself.”
