These two new ‘Wave Skimmer’ class boats are off to Asia to serve on a refinery terminal . The new class is an innovative design which was developed in conjunction with Elastec; it has a hydraulically operated garbage scoop at the bow for floating waste collection which can deposit up to two cubic metres into a removable skip on deck. In addition to trash recovery the boats have proprietary dynamic oil collection chambers matched with Elastec skimmers for oil recovery. The boats are fitted with 5m3 of recovered oil storage capacity together with a ballast system that ensures their trim remains optimal at all stages of the oil recovery. The propulsion package consists of two inboard 115 bhp diesel engines driving Hamilton 213 waterjets that give the boat exceptional manoeuvrability as we all as a shallow draft which make her ideal for working in confined and awkward waters. She is very robustly built to take the bumps and scrapes that will inevitably come with the work she is designed to carry out and she will make a very versatile addition to any harbour fleet.
