Vessel Spill Kits (OPA90)

oil_tankers_1

Our tanker and barge vessel spill kits are in compliance with the US Department of Transportation discharge removal equipment regulations for oil carrying vessels.

The Oil Pollution Act of 1990 (33 CFR Part 155) or OPA90 requires oil carrying vessels in U.S. waters to have oil spill clean up equipment on board for on-deck spills.

  • Oil tankers and barges with an overall length of 400 feet or more have an increased requirement of being able to clean up spills of 12 barrels (504 gallons)
  • Vessels with an overall length of 400 feet or less, are required to be able to contain and remove on-deck spills of at least 7 barrels (294 gallons).

Our vessel spill kits are a must for fast and effective clean-up.

On-board vessel spill kits combining PetroGuard-D as an add-on as an oil spill solidifying absorbent are available on request.

Add a 55-gallon drum of PetroGuard-D to your spill kits for an additional layer of safety.

Please contact us about your vessel spill kit requirements.  We build to suit!
