FPSO And Drilling Rig Tank Desludging / Cleaning

Fairtex Group is the global market leader in air-operated ultra-tough vacuum pumping units capable of transferring any flowable material across a wide range of mining, oil & gas, FPSO & tanker tank cleaning, agricultural, industrial, and municipal applications. Pumping the unpumpable.

Tank cleaning is the process of removing hydrocarbon vapors, liquids, or residues. We provide cleaning services to oil tankers, shipping vessels, and other waterborne vessels. Our experienced team cleans engine rooms, pump rooms, storage rooms, bilge tanks, slop tanks, fuel oil tanks, and oil spills with our eco-friendly solution.

Tank cleaning may be required for one or more of the following reasons:

  • To gas-free tanks for internal inspections, repairs, or prior to entering dry dock.

  • To remove sediments from tank top plating.

  • To load a different and not compatible grade of cargo.

The Fairtex Group range of Slurry Management Systems and vacuum pumps offers an efficient and economical solution to most pumping challenges.

Fairtex Group provides FPSO (Floating Production Storage and Offloading) tank sludge removal & hull cleaning with its Pneumatic Air Operated Vacuum Pump. The pump has provided increased efficiencies, reduced completion times with increased safety requirements of working within a confined space.
