A severe problem when fighting oil spill emergencies is the limited capacity of the tanks on the oil recovery vessels. In order to use the tank capacity as efficiently as possible, the oil recovery vessel is equipped with its own separation unit. A Börger rotary lobe pump conveys the oil from the water surface of the collecting tank into the oil storage tank. The separated water can be discharged into the sea. The Börger oil pump was installed on the vessel in 1996 and has been conveying the crude oil without any problems since then.
