FilterBelt Boats - Oil Spill Response Vessels

The 30ft Kvichak/MARCO FilterBelt boat is a rapid oil spill response vessel that can operate in protected waters such as ports, harbors and inland environments. The lightweight construction allows this boat to rapidly arrive on scene and immediately start oil spill cleanup operations. The boat incorporates an advancing filterbelt skimmer that enables the boat to skim oil while going through the water with high efficiency.

The system is able to screen debris and entrained solids from the oil, which is then retained on board in recovered oil tanks. Once full the boat can quickly transit to the disposal location where the oil is pumped from the holding tanks using the integral offloading system.


Elastec and Kvichak Marine Industries (pronounced Kweejack) have formed an alliance to better serve customers of MARCO FilterBelt™ skimmer systems and Kvichak/MARCO Oil Spill Recovery Vessels (OSRVs).
