Van Heck has recently signed a multiple year emergency response contract with CMA CGM. The agreement encompasses Van Heck’s Fast Oil Recovery pump, the Sea Trophy. By signing this agreement leading shipping company CMA CGM sets a step forward in their Environmental Responsibility Programme, making them one of the first companies being prepared for oil spill prevention.

Immediate availability of the Sea Trophy

This agreement guarantees the immediate availability of a Sea Trophy emergency response kit for CMA CGM. The kit consists of a complete set of tools and accessories, including the Sea Trophy hydraulically driven pump, capable of pumping oil with a flow of 70 m3/h. The pump is suitable for the FOR systems (Fast Oil Recovery, licensed by JLMD Ecologic Group) installed on board of CMA CGM vessels.

CMA CGM is convinced of the Sea Trophy’s significance in defusing a potential oil spill situation or to remove off-spec bunkering quickly and efficiently, saving time and money.

Mr. Jeroen van Heck, Managing Director of Van Heck added: ”We are proud to be able to cooperate with a leading shipping company such as CMA CGM to contribute to cleaner seas. Especially since CMA CGM is focussed on safety and owns the highest number of ships equipped with a FOR system”.
