The FORU (Floating Oil Recovery Unit) is an oil recovery device, based on the latest technical developments. It is not a skimmer but an adjustable down-draught system that performs skimming activities. It’s shape makes it become one with the waves, ready to function under rough offshore circumstances.
Working at high speed the FORU takes in up to 340 m3 per hour of the oil/water mixture (approx. 90,000 US gallons). The toxic liquid will be pumped into a storage facility such as an oil tanker, barge or bladder.
