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.
