De-bunkering & Salvage operations in cold climate conditions with Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) reaching ultra-high viscosities, present the ultimate challenge for all existing fuel oil transfer methods.
Where accessibility is difficult and conditions are extreme Pro Liquid is frequently contracted to provide a solution for the transfer challenges faced.
Continuous R & D within the Pro Liquid Group led to various pumping solutions with amongst others Pro Liquid P.U.M.P.S.® (Portable Ultra-viscous Marine-fuel Pumping System).
This system incorporates an improved modular version of the proven water injection transfer method coupled to the existing Pro Liquid F.O.T. (Fuel Oil Transfer) system.
