Use: Skimming extensive, long-duration spills in a stationary mode.
Description: CGA-200 consists of a skimming system built into a specially designed barge. Boom is stored on two sides of the barge and launched off the barge stern by a pneumatic reel system. Once deployed, the boom is held in a “V” shape by two tugs where it directs concentrated oil into the skimmers. Mounted in slots in the barge are four Marco belt skimmers, each followed by a weir skimmer. The weirs are used to collect any oil that passes by the belts. Four compartments built into the hull of the barge provide 4,100 barrels of recovered fluid storage. The recovered oil can be separated and offloaded.
