Canada is a maritime nation, with more coastline than any other country in the world. Canadians rely on their coasts and waterways for recreation, to deliver products to market, and to earn their livelihood, but they also cherish them for cultural reasons.
The Oceans Protection Plan helps to keep Canadians waters and coasts safe and clean, for today's use and for future generations. The Government of Canada is upgrading Canadian Coast Guard assets to better respond in the event of an oil spill. As part of the Oceans Protection Plan, the Canadian Coast Guard has received its final delivery of 220 LAMOR Floating Oil Storage Tanks from Griffin Engineered Systems Inc. of Halifax, the exclusive Canadian distributor for Lamor Corporation Ab, of Porvoo, Finland.
“These LAMOR Floating Oil Storage Tanks, in 5m3 and 10m3 capacities, were manufactured to the Canadian Coast Guard’s exacting specifications, including sea trials and product verification to ASTM F1599-95. They have been distributed to ten strategic locations across Canada and are now a key component of the Canadian Coast Guard’s comprehensive response systems for spills on water,” states Michael Hebb of Griffin Engineered Systems.
“We are excited at the success of this delivery, especially during these challenging COVID times, and we look forward to continuing to assist Canada in modernizing its response equipment with our state of the art, world class oil spill response equipment,” says Dan Beyer, General Manager of Lamor USA Corporation.
