  • Oil Spill Responce


The floating recovered oil storage tank is a towable floating oil/water storage tank with a hull shaped storage pocket. The hull is manufactured from neoprene coated fabric. The superstructure is composed of compartments with internal airtight conical bulkheads for increased integrity. The tank is boat shaped with raised bow and stern which increases stability when under tow.

FROSTS are available in various sizes from 5m3 to 100m3.

FROSTS can be used to transport oil products in port and marine operations or for the intermediate storage/transportation of recovered oil. Alternatively, they can also be used for the transportation of all kinds of low-density products.

Key features and benefits

  • The tank can be rapidly inflated on the deck of a vessel using low-pressure air inflators.
  • A fitted cover is provided to prevent splash-over during towing, and to allow easy access for emptying and cleaning.
  • The lifting points all adhere to LOLER (Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998).
  • The neoprene fabric allows for the use in a wide range of operating temperatures (-40C to 90C).
  • The neoprene fabric offers excellent abrasion resistance and longevity.
  • The tanks can be towed at 10 knots when empty and 4 knots when full.
  • The independent inflation tube compartments ensure high integrity in the unlikely event of damage to any one compartment.
