Oil Spill Cleansing System


Tested and proven for close to two years throughout the major ports of France.

An hydrocarbon-screamer with an oil-seperator disk wich can recover 90% of oil and hydrocarbon and only 10% water:

Up to 9,000 liter capacity/intervention with existing boats at 3,000 liter capacity

300 liters per minute

Extremely mobile boats with the lowest emission possible (solar powered designed boats are possible)

Boats designed for very shallow waters (enabling them to clean very close to reefs, beaches and other otherwise non reachable areas)

A fire hose sufficient to fight against dock and sea blazes


Our systems have been tested and approved for a year and a half on French Riviera harbours (Monaco, Golf-juan, Cannes , Fréjus, Saint-Tropez): 

Avoiding Pollutants to Reach Specific Areas or Delicate Installations


ECOTANK is a non-polluting and silent barge, specially designed to resolve pollution-related problems on and around boats as well as in designated areas such as ports, moorings and beaches. The barges specialize in : 1. Elliminating pollution from harbour areas, beaches, reefs and moorings 2. Reprocessing polluted waters 3. Additionals options

Ecotank consults on complete logistics needs for oil-spillage, black-waters, grey waters and holds alongside piers on dry docks, moorings, beaches and reefs

Ecotank barges were designed to avoid creating pollution themselves (low emissions for standard design but solar powered barges also available)

Ecotank designs are extremely versatile to fit the needs of the project and/or area at hand

Ecotank estimates 4 to 6 weeks to build a barge
