Uniquely designed V-shape formation of multiple booms to single vessel oil spill recovery system

Hydrodynamic multiple boom formation for the recovery of oil

The MOS Sweeper is a result of a successful development project with NOFO (Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies). The MOS Sweeper consists of a uniquely designed V-shape formation of multiple booms. This innovative single vessel oil spill recovery system with a towing speed up to 5 knots uses the laws of hydrodynamics to make the recovery of oil more efficient and on nature’s terms. The MOS Sweeper ranges in size from 15 m to 50 m. It has proven its capabilities in the harshest of weather conditions and is operational in strong ocean currents and wave heights above the limitations of traditional systems. The MOS Sweeper has been extensively tested by NOFO and is a regular participant at the annual oil on water exercise, held by NOFO and NCA. Depending on size, the MOS Sweeper range can be operated from supply or offshore supply vessels, fishing vessels, coast guard vessels and stand-by vessels. The MOS Sweeper can be deployed and in use within less than 30 minutes which ensures rapid response in an emergency. The MOS Sweeper is NOFO’s preferred product for sweeping operations offshore.

El MOS Sweeper ha sido ensayado a fondo por parte de NOFO y es participante frecuente en los ejercicios anuales de petróleo en agua organizados por NOFO y NCA. Según el tamaño, el MOS Sweeper se puede desplegar desde un buque de suministro o buque supply para alta mar, barco de pesca, barco de guardia costera o barco de apoyo. El equipo se puede desplegar en menos de 30 minutos, lo cual asegura una respuesta rápida en caso de emergencia.


El MOS Sweeper es el equipo preferido de NOFO para las operaciones de barrido en alta mar.
