Norwegian company Framo has introduced a cost-effective and customisable oil skimmer offering, based on its TransRec platform, allowing customers to tailor systems to fit operational requirements.

TransRec, proven in more than 250 installations, contains equipment and features required for an effective oil recovery operation in most operational conditions - including a portable electric remote-control panel that allows operators to be positioned for the best view of the operation. Operators can now add options including control and sensor packages designed to offer greater optimisation of oil recovery and prolong the operational windows of equipment in harsh conditions.

“Our customers now have the possibility to tailor the TransRec system to their specifications,” said Framo Area Sales Manager Jørgen Brandt Theodorsen. “This offers customers the best tailored and optimised solution for a high-capacity offshore skimmer system in the world at a low entrance level.”

With a range of skimmers, the Framo TransRec system is designed to handle any oil spill, whether it occurs in the process of oil production or as the result of a vessel-related incident. It has proved its capabilities as an oil recovery system for the open sea and as an emergency offloading system.

“Regardless of the offshore environment or the characteristics of the oil, the recovery and transfer system provide the capabilities you need to recover more oil when time is not on your side,” said Theodorsen.

TransRec has been developed over 40 years and is claimed to be the longest-established oil skimmer system on the market, backed by Framo’s global, round-the-clock service and support operation.
