DISCOIL AND ENVIRONMENT
THE VALUE OF DESCOIL TO ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
DISCOIL, thanks to its characteristics, is in favour of the environment:
- It does not create emulsions and permits reuse: of recovered oil in industrial processes without additional treatments.
- Operates inside the cover basins: thanks to its mechanical properties, it is able to operates inside the cover basins, in ATEX Zone 0.
- Reduction of the petrol sulphur fumes: working 24 hours per day DISCOIL is able to clean the basin very quickly avoiding the sulphur fumes in the air.
- Oil attraction capacity: the surface movement generated by the rotating discs with its particular shape allow the attraction and recovery even at a distance.
- An efficient emergency unit: FLOAT DISCOIL is suitable to be kept on board ships, petroleum terminals, ports, rivers, lakes or along coasts, to quickly meet the emergencies following hydrocarbon pollution.
DISCOIL OIL SKIMMER
HAVEN GENOVA OIL SPILL
In 1992 DISCOIL has operated in the big oil spill of HAVEN in Genova, and it has been adopted by Italian Navy and other environmental operators, such as Castalia.
Also in that occasion was confirmed that DISCOIL is the only solution able to recover the oil. ECOIL could demonstrate its efficiency and all the oil was easily recovered also thanks to the big dimensions of the discs.
SARDINIA OIL SPILL
In 2001 a large oil spill happened caused by the tankers in front of Sardinia coasts. FLOAT DISCOIL oil skimmers operated effectively and prevented pollution of the island coasts.
LATIUM OIL SPILL
Other big success of FLOAT DISCOIL was obtained with operation on the 24th of February in 1993 offshore Latial coasts.
Our machines have occurred in this accidental disaster of about 15.000 liters of oil in the sea.
N.2 FLOAT DISCOIL 50 AND 30 operated in this spill with excellent results and a total recovery of oil, thanks also to our prompt action.
LIVORNO – AGIP ABRUZZI OIL SPILL
In the first days of April 1991 the ferrie Moby Prince collides with the tanker Agip-Abruzzo.
The huge quantity of oil released by the tanker was recovered from the emergency unit FLOAT DISCOIL and ECOIL, with great satisfaction of the operators.
COMO LAKE OIL SPILL
The ecological disaster was avoided only thanks to prompt action of our DISCOIL.
All the oil released from pipelines was fully recovered.
Exactly on that occasion our floating skimmers named FLOAT DISCOIL were born and successively used in many ecological disasters.
