Norwegian partnership creates one-stop-shop for oil spill response
A NorLense booms contain an oil spill – oil would be recovered using Framo TransRec skimmer

Norwegian suppliers Framo, Maritime Partner, Norbit Aptomar and NorLense have come together to create an oil spill recovery vessel group to provide oil spill response solutions.

Framo’s area manager oil and gas pumping systems Jørgen Brandt Theodorsen said “Our aim is to be a one-stop-shop where we pool our efforts and act as a total systems supplier of safe, highly functional, and well-tested technology.

Mr Theodorsen said the equipment offered by the companies has undergone thorough testing and quality assurance and draws on 40 years of oil spill response experience.

The oil spill recovery group is offering a package solution that covers everything a customer might need to respond to an oil spill, from detection and containment to recovery. The companies are all long-established specialists in their fields.

NorLense’s sales manager Roy Arne Nilsen said “The customer only has to deal with one of the partners to get access to a complete system that covers everything and is fully adapted in terms of functionality, volume and size.

Aptomar’s radar and infrared cameras can be used to identify the location of an oil spill and produce an overview of it; Maritime Partner’s high-speed vessels are well-suited to pulling equipment such as booms into place. Oil would be contained with booms from NorLense and recovered onto a vessel with a Framo TransRec oil skimmer.
