FORU by Hytrans®
Hytrans Systems B.V. in the Netherlands helps emergency response organizations all over the world to fight the impact of oil spills and large-scale fires.
The FORU oil skimmers of Hytrans® are the best in the world at cleaning up oil spills, also in rough water conditions. They are robust, easy to deploy, and provide a high recovery capacity and efficiency. The simple weir-type skimmer can be deployed within minutes of the incident and can be operated by every skill level. The FORU oil skimmers are self-adjust, hydraulically driven, have no external moving parts, and are easy to operate. Through its high capacity, FORU skimmers can clean up small to the biggest and worst oil spills.
Oil spills are a key risk in the petrochemical industry. Especially at port companies and refineries, oil spills can happen in a split moment during the storage, transfer, or processing of oil-related products.
Proven system concept
The FORU oil skimmers are based on a floating, hydraulically driven, submersible pump, a system concept well known to Hytrans®.
Hytrans Systems B.V. was founded in 1964. In the early eighties, an innovative and revolutionary pump system was developed by Hytrans® using a diesel engine and hydraulically driven submersible floating pumps; the HydroSub®. The HydroSub® system became very successful in the fire-fighting market due to its performance and unmet flexibility in accessing open water sources. Since then, Hytrans® has continuously improved and extended this concept into, what is now known as, a high-volume mobile water transport system. HydroSub® -based systems are containerized systems that have been designed for use by emergency response teams. They can be deployed in minutes with a minimum of manpower and can transport water continuously over several kilometers even in extreme conditions.
HydroSub®- based systems are used by many organizations in the petrochemical industry due to the inherent industrial risks related to the processing and storage of oil-related products. The FORU oil skimmer can be driven by the HydroSub® of the mobile water transport system, requiring only a single investment for two applications, or by a separate power pack.
Proven effectiveness worldwide
Since 1988 Hytrans® has delivered over 1200 HydroSub®- based systems to fire brigades, emergency services, authorities and industries all over the globe. They have been used during minor and large-scale incidents saving many lives, livelihoods and property.
Nowadays, approximately 70 employees are working at Hytrans® to ensure the highest possible quality of these systems and further improve their functionality. It is therefore that Hytrans® is the worldwide market leader in mobile water transport and FORU oil skimmers are recognized for their high recovery capacity and efficiency.
