Is the offshore oil industry ready for change? We are!


Foru Solution B.V. is located in Harlingen, The Netherlands. Foru Solution wants to  develop preventive measures against pollution of our oceans worldwide and subsequent  damage to our maritime flora en fauna.


A key change in oil risk management
The FORU (Floating Oil Recovery Unit) is an oil recovery device, based on the  latest technical developments. It is not a skimmer but an adjustable down-draught system that performs skimming activities. It’s shape makes it become one with the waves, ready to function under rough offshore circumstances.

Working at high speed the FORU takes in up to 340 m3 per hour of the oil/water mixture (approx. 90,000 US gallons). The recovered oil will be pumped into a  storage facility such as an oil tanker, barge or bladder. The FORU acts at the  epicenter of an oil spill rather than at the end, when oil reaches beaches and  estuaries causing maximum damage. It can handle various types of oil.

In short, the FORU is a unique device, highly flexible, capable of recovering  massive quantities of oil in record time, even under adverse weather conditions. Operated by only two persons it is capable of working continuously without any maintenance for longer periods of time. The FORU technology has been patented in July 2013.

FORU facts: 

  • Capacity: recovers 40,000 – 45,000 barrels of oil per 24 hours 
  • The FORU has an oil recovery ratio of > 75% 
  • Highly flexible: immediate deployment when oil spill occurs 
  • Inlet opening of 360 degrees and floating on its own 
  • Stabilising itself at water surface level 
  • Functions in rough water: waves of ≤ 8,2 feet (< 2,5 m) 
  • Adjustable down-draught system for a broad spectrum of oil substances
  • Fits in a 20 feet container, including power pack 
  • Easy to lift and transport 
  • Easy to operate with a remote control: low operational costs 
  • Built for industrial use: low maintenance costs
  • Tested at the Pollution Control Authority in Horten/Norway and at Ohmsett, Leonardo/USA
