In May 2019, in Astrakhan, near the Korchagin oil platform, CHIMPOLITEK jointly with DESMI conducted exercises on the use of the Speed Sweep trawling system. This boom system helps collect oil quickly and efficiently by the moving, both with two vessels and one. A skimmer built into the system or separately standalone can also be used. In this deployment, a single-vessel trawling method was used using the Ro-Kite water wing. The exercises were led by specialists from CHIMPOLITEK and DESMI with the participation of the «Langepas» ship team and the Maritime Rescue Service rapid response team. The team showed excellent coordinated work on the demonstrative deployment of the system, ensuring the minimum time for setting booms, as well as its effective use at a speed of 3 knots.
The CHIMPOLITEK company thanks the DESMI specialists in assisting with the exercises, as well as the «Langepas» team and the Marine Rescue Service quick response team for their efficiency and professionalism.
