Floating Oil Recovery Units
FORU functions in rough water
FORU is easy to deploy
Static and dynamic solution
Oil Spill Equipment
INTRODUCING THE FORU
The only serious oil spill equipment for any oil spill
FUNCTIONS IN ROUGH WATER
The smart buoy design in combination with the position of the center of gravity, makes the FORU stick to the waves, maintaining its high efficiency
EASY TO DEPLOY
The FORU can be carried by two persons, and does not require any assembly before use: Just connect the hoses and deploy the FORU system
EASY TO OPERATE
The FORU can be operated without the need of instructions. No buoyancy adjustments are needed
STATIC AND DYNAMIC SOLUTION
The FORU can be used in static situations and can be integrated in dynamic sweeping systems
HIGH RECOVERY RATE
The FORU can recover up to 45,000 barrels per 24 hours with an oil recovery ratio of 75 – 100 percent
EASY TO MAINTAIN
The FORU can be dissasmbled by unscrewing only a few bolts and is easy to clean

FORU units Operational
We offer a total solution to clean up oil spills, our oil spill equipment includes booms, bladders, power packs and of course one of our down-draft systems, which we have designed for nearshore, harbor, river, lake and offshore conditions. Both down-draft systems can be deployed and stored without assembly. Either FORU system can be easily placed in the pocket of a dynamic sweeping system like the Current Buster or the Oil Trawl.
To be ready for the case that an oil spill occurs the oil spill equipment needs to be maintained and your personnel must be trained. Our systems are designed to be easy to use, maintain and clean. Because of these features our down-draft systems have a high availability in case of an oil spill. Training is supplied with our total solution to teach your personnel how to work with our equipment. Due to smart engineering our down-draft systems are easy to disassemble and clean.
The FORU down-draft systems are designed to function in rough waters. The smart designed buoy-shape makes the FORU stick to the waves and therefore makes it possible to operate the FORU in offshore conditions. Our oil spill equipment skimmer systems are made of high grade materials and 100% mechanical to withstand the severe offshore weather conditions. Because of the smart design of the down draft system, the adjustment is intuitive therefore very little training is required.
Concerning oil spills, the question is not if they occur, but when they will.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can debris get stuck in the FORU?
A set of debris handling measures have been taking to avoid the FORU systems from getting shut down as a results of debris.
Those measures conisists of debris blocking shields, adjustable inlet opening and a pump that can handle debris up to 60mm
In the uncommon event of debris getting stuck in the FORU, the system can be dissassembled and assembled in no time.
Can the FORU handle waves higher than 2.5m?
In waves of over 2,5 meters the FORU-340 will still operate but it does affect the efficiency.
What are the effects of salty and humid environment on the FORU?
Foru-Solution offers a yearly maintenance program to ensure – and increase – the lifespan of the equipment.
