Hytrans Systems BV in the Netherlands, the market leader in high-volume mobile water transport systems has recently acquired the technology and products of Foru Solution BV.
Foru Solution is well known for its innovative and proven oil-spill response solutions. The FORU oil skimmers are world-class when it comes to cleaning up oil spills, also in rough weather. They are robust, easy to deploy and provide a high recovery capacity and efficiency. The FORU skimmers are self-adjust, hydraulically driven, have no external moving parts, and are easy to operate. Through its high capacity, FORU skimmers can clean up small to the biggest and worst oil spills.
With the acquisition, Hytrans expands its already large product range and makes it even more versatile for its customers in the port and petrochemical markets. Hytrans CEO, Mr Frank Bosveld sees the acquisition of the FORU products as a great expansion of the Hytrans product range: ‘The addition of the FORU oil skimmers allows us to better serve our customers in the port and petrochemical industries as a single mobile Hytrans System can now be used as fire-fighting solution as well as to clean-up oil spills.’
The acquisition also allows serving the oil-spill market with FORU products in a better way thanks to the extensive distribution and service network of Hytrans Systems. The driver behind FORU products, Mr Koos Tamminga, is therefore also glad about the acquisition: ‘Joining forces with Hytrans Systems allows for much stronger business development of the FORU solutions into the oil spill market given the strong capabilities and over 30 years of experience of Hytrans.’
