Towable tank for temporary oil storage

The ECOBAG® is a towable, collapsible floating storage container which can be deployed quickly for temporary storage and towing of recovered oil. The ECOBAG® is exceedingly strong, durable and light and requires very little maintenance. It is compact in storage, easy to transport and manageable in operations even in rough conditions.

Shoreline operations

Unfortunately, many oil spills create shoreline or near shore pollution. The ECOBAG®’s very shallow draft makes it an ideal solution for temporary storage in confined areas such as estuaries, rivers and salt marshes. If access to the shoreline is not possible from the sea, a ECOBAG® can be deployed and filled on the beach, if the ground is even and level.

Skimming operations

The presence of sufficient storage volume will greatly maximize the amount of oil collected in the critical first hours of any skimming operation. The ECOBAG® is designed to increase the storage capacity of small oil spill response vessels. Depending on the operational requirements, the ECOBAG® can be towed alongside or streamed behind. The ECOBAG® can be deployed manually, by crane or from a dedicated reel, and is ready to be used in less than 5 minutes from its stored condition.

Emergency offloading

In the event of a grounding or collision, an ECOBAG® can provide the additional storage to minimize the spillage. Often only a small proportion of a damaged tank’s content, quickly transferred, can prevent a major disaster. Due to its light weight and compact size, the ECOBAG® is capable of being transported by helicopter to the site of operation.
