Oil spill equipment

Foru-Solution manufactures oil spill skimmers in the Netherlands. Our skimmers are the best in the world at cleaning up oil spills, also rough weather. They are robust, easy to deploy and provide a high recovery capacity and efficiency. Our simple weir type skimmer has no external moving parts, and can be operated by every skill level. It even self-adjusts without the use of a bellow.

They are reliable and can be acquired with matching ancillary products like a FORU power-pack, NorLense booms & bladders and Tideman work boats. Buying our products will ensure that you are ready to clean up any oil spill. Trough its high capacity the FORU can clean up the biggest and worst oil spills.

THE FORU SOLUTION

The FORU-70

The FORU-70 is the compact version of the FORU-340, specially designed for the
sensitive shallow parts of the Wadden Sea (UNESCO World Heritage) and thoroughly
tested in several oil types by the Norwegian Coastal Administration test center in Horten,
approved by DNV GL. Working at maximum speed the FORU takes in up to 70 m3 per
hour of the oil/water mixture. The toxic liquid will be pumped into a storage facility such
as a container, barge or bladder.

ANCILLARY OIL SPILL EQUIPMENT

Foru-Solution are working closely with NorLense booms and Tideman work boats to profide an all in one oil spill solution. 

NorLense booms and bladders

NorLense is one of the world’s leading companies for development and manufacture of Oil Spill Emergency Equipment. The Emergency Response Market-products are developed for rough weather conditions and are based upon flexible materials and innovative technology.

High speed sweep system (Oil Trawl)

The Fast Current Boom System from NorLense is a containerized one-man-operated system with single point inflation of the boom part.

Offshore boom systems

NorLense offshore booms are made to meet rough weather conditions on open sea. 

Coastal boom systems

The original single point inflated oil boom with automatic inflation for coastal use, NO-450-S and NO-600-S.

Harbour boom systems

These types of booms are manufactured with a freeboard containing expanded polystyrene.

E

Bladders

Norlense builds inflatable bladders from 5 to 50 m3 for portable storage of the oil.

Tideman work boats

Manufacturer of High Speed Indestructible Workboats. Made of HDPE sheets making it the toughest workboats available. Built to last. Made in Holland just like the FORU.

E

Custom made

Tideman boats are custom made for oil spill responce. 

E

Super buoyancy – lighter then water

HDPE is lighter than water and that makes it extremely buoyant, even when submerged.

E

Zero corrosion – zero maintenance

Oxygen, salt and water have no effect on HDPE.

E

Resistance to marine growth – no anti fouling needed

With an HDPE hull you will never have to deal with marine growth: it just doesn’t stick. 

E

Aggressive liquids? No harm done!

HDPE can hardly be affected by any aggressive oil spill liquids.

E

High impact resistance – not afraid of sharp rocks

HDPE is both tough and flexible thanks to its elastic properties.

E

Durability: 100% recyclable

HDPE can be 100% remelted and recycled in a new PE blend.
