Ready for Dispatch systems (RFDs) are a containerised boom and skimmer initiative developed by DESMI to have a range of complete standard equipment systems available to suit scenarios from the offshore to shoreline.
The containerised boom and skimmer systems, including booms, skimmers, power packs and hoses, are all packaged, including DNV containers, and ready for dispatch. These systems can then be immediately deployed in to the operations arena without delay.
Much attention has been given to the standard equipment mix and details such as spark arrestors and chalwyn valves on the offshore power packs are default fitments. Other details such as boom tow sets, inflation valve keys, hydraulic hoses, and even copies of the operations and maintenance manuals are all included.
The containerised boom and skimmer systems are prefixed with either OS, for Offshore or NS for Nearshore or coastal. Thereafter a B or S simply identifies a boom or skimmer system respectively. The advantage of these set menus of equipment systems results in the end user or clientbeing able to start their operations with high quality, ready to go equipment with a simple, one line instruction.
The OS-1S system is a DESMI HELIX 250 brush Terminator skimmer with a 50kW diesel hydraulic power pack. The hydraulic and discharge hoses are conveniently stored on a reel. All this equipment is stored and secured inside a 10 foot DNV container with double doors both ends. Corner locks, fork lift pockets and lifting slings are all standard. OS-1S is just one of the systems being offered in the DESMI RFD range. Other boom and skimmer packages are also available.
The OS-1B system is 250m of Ro-Boom 1500 which is mounted on to a steel, hydraulically operated reel. In turn, the reel is mounted inside a 10 foot DNV container with double doors both ends. Corner locks, fork lift pockets and lifting slings are all standard. OS-1B is complemented with a power pack and integral blower plus all the hydraulic and air hoses for operations. OS-1B is just one of the systems being offered in the DESMI RFD range. Other boom and skimmer packages are also available.
