Small, agile and safe. The FORU-20 is made from durable polyethylene, marine grade aluminum and stainless steel materials.




Oil spills occur daily and rapid response is essential to prevent damage to the environment. FORU-Solution presents its latest innovative technology: the FORU-20. The FORU (Floating Oil Recovery Unit) is a unique oil recovery device. It is a skimmer based on the latest technological developments with a down-draft system that performs skimming activities. It’s shape makes it free-floating, becoming one with the waves and ready to function under rough circumstances.

The FORU-20 is the smallest version of our innovative downdraft skimmer system, specially designed for the sensitive shallow parts of the Wadden Sea (UNESCO World Heritage). Depending on the pump connected to the FORU it takes in up to 20 m3 per hour. The oil will be pumped into a storage facility such as a container, barge or bladder.
