Recover large oil spills with a single vessel
SpillPro's new self-launching skimmer system recovers five times more oil than any skimmer system ever built.
In stationary mode, it encounters, skims, pumps and transfers high volumes of oil – light or heavy. And in advancing mode, it does exactly the same at up to three knots – requiring only one towing vessel and a BoomVane.
Either way, it requires a maximum of just three responders.
And with its ultra-high capacity, it's ideal for large volume oil spills – both offshore and near shore.

How this product solves problems
- Recover oil effectively with just one vessel
- Ideal for larger spills
Benefits of SpillPro self-launching skimmers
- Reduces deployment time
- High-volume oil recovery
- Saves costly and time-consuming clean-ups
- Requires minimal personnel
Thanks to its large capacity, the SpillPro self-launching skimmer saves on costly clean-ups. It can be deployed easily, so it can quickly start removing oil from water – a critical factor in containing a spill during the early stages.
Guaranteed high recovery rates
Our self-launching skimmer can recover 2,500 litres per minute at 95.3% efficiency. Those numbers are proven by independent tests. And thanks to our unrivalled end-to-end support, you'll get outstanding results from your recovery effort.
- X150 Self-launching skimmer system
Requiring just one vessel, SpillPro self-launching skimmer systems utilise word-first skimming technology. Their patented grooved discs create a vacuum-like capillary effect to recover oil at extremely high rates.
Once deployed, our self-launching skimmers can be towed at higher speeds than traditional systems. That means a greater volume of oil is encountered, allowing a unique oil-retaining hull to recover large volumes of oil.
The design incorporates a powerful, lightweight submersible pump. Hydraulic and discharge hoses are built into the sweep boom, eliminating external umbilical.
The complete package is highly compact, meaning easy transportation and rapid global shipment.

These are the key technologies used in the cleanup of large scale oil spills, such as the Deepwater Horizon spill
Oil spill skimmers are often rated based on the offload pump capacity but this is misleading. Independent bodies can verify rate of oil removal and efficiency. Read more.
