Oreco Automated Environmental Solutions for Oil Tank Cleaning and Hydrocarbons Recovery
Oreco develops, manufactures and globally markets mobile turnkey systems for automated waste oil recovery and storage tank cleaning in the oil and petrochemical industries. Using safe, environmentally friendly and cost-effective methods, Oreco strives to keep tank owners and service providers at the forefront of the oil recovery and tank cleaning industry.
With careful development and production, Oreco’s high-quality solutions satisfy all tank cleaning and recovery needs – from the largest crude oil tanks to smaller white oil tanks, providing industry ‘best practice’ according to HSE issues.
All Oreco products are fully compliant with the latest industry regulations and all Oreco systems are constructed to operate safely in potentially hazardous and harsh environments.
The Oreco solutions portfolio
Oreco technology is designed specifically to assist customers in achieving high levels of efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness. In keeping with this approach, the Oreco solutions portfolio is comprised of four advanced systems offering easier, faster, and safer performance.
The patented BLABO system cleans large difficult-to-clean tanks such as crude oil or heavy fuel oil tanks. The smaller MoClean is designed for tanks containing lighter oil products. The SLOPO® system offers efficient and cost-effective slop oil treatment. And the new PROH2O® represents a fully automated filtration solution for produced water.
BLABO – designed to clean crude oil / heavy fuel oil tanks
The patented BLABO system is an automated, non-man entry tank cleaning system especially designed to clean large volume, difficult-to-clean oil tanks like crude oil and heavy fuel oil. Modular and mobile, the BLABO system consists of up to four containerised process modules to provide desludging, cleaning and oil recovery in one integrated process. BLABO is suitable for different tank size and type, including both floating and fixed roof tanks.
MoClean – the process system for cleaning white oil product tanks
The compact MoClean® system is directed towards small and medium sized liquid product tanks having contained white oils like diesel, kerosene, jet fuel and other petroleum products, edible oils, chemicals/petrochemicals, etc.
MoClean is a mobile and fully integrated process system offering automated cleaning and separation of oil, solids and water.
SLOPO – optimal slop oil treatment
The SLOPO® system from Oreco offers efficient and environmentally responsible slop oil treatment. Using special core technology, SLOPO converts a wide range of potentially hazardous slop oils into products that increase your profits.
Compact and safe, SLOPO is constructed for optimal performance in hazardous areas and meets the highest safety standards and directives. Available in two configurations, the SLOPO system also features add-ons for easy customising to situational requirements.
PROH2O – filtration solution for produced water
The PROH2O® system represents innovative and proven technology engineered to generate clean water from the most difficult produced water including FRAC water, SAGD water or polymer flooding. Featuring the world’s smartest membrane separation system, PROH2O is a fully-automated, plug-and-play filtration solution equipped with highly advanced components.
With PROH2O, installation is easy, maintenance is minimal and the robust engineering and technology mean optimal performance and continuous operation in all environments and conditions.
Designed with health, safety and the environment in mind
Sustainable development has become not only a key issue for the oil industry; it has become a global imperative. It’s clear to everyone that oil will become a scarcer and increasingly valuable natural resource in the future. Meanwhile, ever more stringent health, safety and environmental (HSE) regulations also demand increased responsibility towards the environment.
With this in mind, Oreco aims to set the standard for safe, high-quality tank cleaning and oil recovery systems that both support sustainable development and meet the most rigorous HSE requirements in the world. And Oreco’s ISO 9001:2000 certification guarantees that Oreco solutions deliver the same high standards every time in every location.
The Oreco approach to HSE comes into play in every advanced Oreco system in tank cleaning e.g: closed-loop cleaning processes reuse the recovered sludge as the primary cleaning media, so there is no need for toxic cleaning chemicals. Effective separation of sludge into hydrocarbons, water and solids minimises the amount of waste for disposal and reduces emissions to the atmosphere. Recovered hydrocarbons are then suitable for reuse or resale.
The non-man entry system of Oreco’s automated solutions eliminates the need for personnel to be present inside tanks during operation, significantly reducing exposure to hazardous substances.
The combination of Oreco’s comprehensive training programme, constant process monitoring and wide range of advanced integral safety systems ensures maximum safety for personnel during operation.
Tank cleaning and oil recovery services
Tank cleaning and oil recovery services using the Oreco methods are offered by service providers in the Oreco partner network. Each partner is an independent and well-respected tank cleaning specialist specifically chosen and trained by Oreco in order to ensure that the process complies with the increasingly demanding legal requirements related to safety, hydrocarbon emission and environmental issues.
