Leading the way in pollution control

ALNMARITEC, one of the UK’s leading specialist boat builders, has delivered two new oil pollution control boats to Asia.

The Wave Skimmer class boats have been supplied to Elastec American Marine, a major manufacturer of oil spill equipment.

The innovative design was developed in conjunction with Elastec.

The boats have a hydraulically-operated rubbish scoop at the bow for floating waste collection, which can deposit up to two cubic metres into a removable skip on deck.

They also have oil collection chambers and inboard diesels driving twin waterjets which provide excellent manoeuvrability as well as a very shallow draught for operating close to beaches and ramps.

They follow the successful Alnmaritec Wave Provider class boat delivered to Elastec last year.
