Arctic Skimmer 125

The Arctic Skimmer LAS 125 is a special purpose oil recovery system designed for operations in extremely harsh conditions. The skimmer represents a technical breakthrough for equipment that provides an efficient and effective solution for recovery in all ice and Arctic conditions. The LAS 125 is normally deployed by a crane or davit but can also be operated as a free-floating skimmer utilizing the optional floats when required. The skimmer incorporates static ice deflection pipes and rotating brush wheels for separation and collection of oil. The LAS 125 is equipped with a hot water injection system to improve recovery in Arctic conditions. The two brush wheels collect and separate the oil from the water and ice particles are crushed by the ice crushing screws installed in the hopper. The certified recovery capacity of the LAS 125 is 125 m3/h (550 GPM). Optionally the LAS 125 can also be fitted with floats for skimmer use in open waters.
