30’ Rapid Response Skimmer - Wide

The rapid-response, shallow-water capable skimmer is ideally suited for use on oil spills in waterways, bays and harbors. Adaptable to a variety of marine spill scenarios, this highly specialized vessel works well in many recovery configurations, from free skimming through towed-boom applications, and is able to recover a very wide range of spills from light sheens to very viscous weathered oil products. To date 104, have been ordered by the US Navy and oil spill co-ops.
