LSC MiniBagger

The LSC W/MiniBagger is a flexible and cost efficient way of improving oil spill recovery in harbours, rivers, canals and other shallow or narrow water areas. With the MiniBagger you can collect even diesel from the water with any vessel.

The detachable MiniBagger side collectors can be installed to boats as small as 5 metres in length. It is designed to be used with almost any boat where an attachment can be fitted and can thus turn even a small boat into an oil recovery vessel.
MiniBagger is unique in its capability of collecting also light oils from the water efficiently. This is made possible by the brush design and the unique, patented Lamor oil scraper. The unit consists of consists of a detachable side unit, winch for lifting and lowering, brush case/basin, brush drum and float arm to be lowered onto the water surface. The robust aluminum sweep arm with a supporting wheel at its end makes it possible to drive along the quay wall or side of a ship. The OPTIONAL oil bagging system replaces the need for a fixed tank.

The LSC W/MiniBagger is stored onshore and it only takes 1 m² (11 ft2) of storage space. In case of an oil spill, the MiniBagger can be deployed very quickly. The heaviest part of the system weighs 74 kg (163 lbs) and installation can be done by two people without a need of special tools or a crane. The whole skimmer unit consists of one part only. Combined sweeping arm-skimmer-unit is installed to the side of the boat (one or both). Additionally are only needed OPTIONAL Power unit and Oil Bagging system frame.
