Dispersants are chemical agents (similar to soaps and detergents) that help break up an oil slick into very small droplets, which dilute throughout the water. While this does not remove the spilled material, smaller oil particles are more easily biodegraded and it provides a measure of protection for sensitive habitats threatened by a surface slick. Dispersants are sprayed onto spills by specially equipped boats or planes.

Dispersants, applied to the spill via vessels or planes, can be effective in breaking up spills of light- or medium-density oils.  as a final “polish” after other response options have been used.

We are equipped to perform emergency oil transfers, deploy preventative pollution measures such as containment boom, and lease standby recovery equipment, as well as perform other services such as company-specific response training. Whether you require workboats, tugboats for offshore drilling platform handling, containment booms, fenders for a lightering operation, vacuum units, shoreline booms for a beach cleaning project or dredgers for site remediation, Mavi Deniz can assist in designing and installing a system that fits your specific needs.
