MAVI DENIZ supply Airborne Spray System can operate from a base near the spill, and can be used on small / medium sized spills in confined or inaccessible situations.
As a result of advantages offered by the aerial spraying of dispersants (good control and assessment of results, rapid response, high treatment rates, optimum use of the product, regardless of the sea state), a number of spraying systems have been developed for use with both fixed and rotating wing aircraft (helicopters).
Existing units are either of a type which can be used by the aircraft of convenience or of the permanently installed type. Standard built-in spraying systems of crop spraying aircraft, widely used in agriculture, can be adapted for the spraying of dispersants.
Only neat concentrate dispersants are suitable for use with airborne spraying systems.
Aircraft dispersant spray systems are designed and certified for specific aircraft types and models.
Fixed systems for converted multi-engine aircraft comprise storage for dispersants, a pump including powerpack spray arms with nozzles and a remote control system.
As an alternative, some independent system (with tank, pump and spray booms), have being developed which can be clamped under the fuselage as a detachable pod (i.e. instead the luggage chest); these systems allow to convert quickly regular planes into spraying aircrafts.
POD spraying systems for small aircraft; self container spraying system which can be rigged under a small plane as a POD (luggage trunk). It is quick and easy to convert regular plane
usually devoted to good or passenger transportation into a spraying aircraft. The capacity of these systems is around 1.5 t of dispersant.
Self-contained airborne spraying systems are built to suit large transport airplanes which have rear cargo doors able to remain open during the flight. Containerized units comprise tank, power pack, pump and retractable spray arms and can be easily loaded into the cargo hold.
Fixed spraying systems for helicopters are mounted under the fuselage and are made up of the same parts as the units built-in fixed wing aircraft.
Helicopter spray buckets can be used with any helicopter having a cargo hook for under slung loads. Units are self contained (tank, pump, power pack, spraying arms) and can be remotely
controlled from the cockpit.
Aerial application of dispersants depends on the visibility over the slick area and relies on wave energy for mixing dispersant with spilled oil.
The company will also design and certify to order specialist equipment with in house CAD design.
