SMAVE SOLUTIONS

In the last decade, SMAVE SOLUTIONS Inc. through SMAVE TECHNOLOGIES Inc. has been involved and operating worldwide in the maritime sector, designing, manufacturing, and distributing its unique environmental boats.

Our Corporation

SMAVE SOLUTIONS is a Canadian corporation specialized in sales, marketing, commercialization, engineering, and distribution of environmental vessels for oil spills recuperation designed for Port Authorities, environment agencies, and government organizations worldwide.

Our Vessels

These vessels have been used by many governments in the world for efficiently recuperate floating debris and oil spills, aeration of bodies of water, red tide recuperation, and many other useful tasks.

The oxygenation option is also used for collecting sunken debris up to a depth of thirty feet (10 meters) in ports.

This process of water aeration and removal of debris is very effective in reducing environmental and water health problems associated with decaying solids in stagnant water areas with high traffic volume.

One of the major problems facing most industrial countries today is the environmental degradation of bodies of water, most of which came from fouling of its river, lakes, harbours, and waterways.

The magnitude of these problems becomes evident, and the international regulations and laws have changed considerably and are now in application worldwide to prevent further degradation. According to the “US NAVY” the efficiency level of our technology to recuperate oil spills is 99.9%, which constitutes the best rating of the industry.

Testimonials

The US-NAVY via NAVFAC (Naval Facilities Engineering Command) quoted:

Tests

"show RE to be exceptionally high regardless of surface condition, skimmer settings/configuration, or fuel type. All RE values were close to 100%, meaning that very little water was collected with the recovered oil. As a result, the skimmer temporary storage tanks would contain almost pure oil during recovery operations, and allow more time to be spent on the slick recovering oil."

Partnership

"Partnering with SMAVE to develop a scaled-down, aluminium version of the Standard 4 vessel with improved TE (Throughput Efficiency) performance. The vessel was the only technology in the test program with the unique ability to pull and recover oil to the skimmer while remaining stationary in the water, and displayed outstanding RE in all surface conditions. This feature is highly desirable for routine Navy cleanup operations conducted under piers and in shallow water that are normally inaccessible to manned skimmers."

US Navy Conclusion

"This is the most advanced technology in the world"

Skills And Services

This is what we do

Product

In the last decade, SMAVE SOLUTIONS Inc. through SMAVE TECHNOLOGIES Inc. has been involved and operating worldwide in the maritime sector, designing, manufacturing, and distributing its unique environmental boats.

Many governments around the world have been efficiently using these vessels in cleaning floating debris and oil spills, aeration of bodies of water, red tide recuperation and many other useful tasks.

Development

An aluminium vessel is being developed and will be sold in ready-to-assemble kits offering a unique ease of expedition, transport, and assembly, not only allowing us to be even more competitive price wise but also allowing our licensees to operate with minimal manufacturing capabilities.

We anticipate it will generate strong interest from the industry and believe that it could become our flagship product.

Sweeping Floating Debris

With the opening of a hydraulically activated central door the vessel creates a suction current using the turbine. The surface debris and bulky waste enters the bow and is collected in the bucket. With the bucket activated, a sequence valve activates the holding grate which halts debris while the bucket empties its contents in the containment bin. Once the sequence is finished the grate returns to its initial position.

Oxygenation

The long-term effects of this process are the re-oxygenation and revitalization of the water in which the vessel is operating.

The aerator is composed of vertical venturi nozzles which are positioned in front of the propeller creating a powerful injection of air into the water. Maximum hourly injection reaches up to 3400 m/hr (over 100,000 ft/hr) of air, enriching the water mass with oxygen.

This substantial oxygen enrichment contributes directly to the reduction of toxic chemicals suspended on the water surface.

Oil Spils

The flow of water created draws with it various types of pollutants and surface debris. The solid pollutants are trapped in the retractable bucket while the liquid pollutants are drawn into the oil skimmer. A specially-designed control valve completes the separation cycle and all pollutants are discarded via a transfer pump.

Most areas of the world have a system of emergency response units that use booms, dispersants, and small skimmers to cleanup spills. This approach is not very effective. Each oil spill near land creates considerable damages to the environment.


Water Cannon

The optional water cannon can be used to remove oil and debris from beaches, which can then be picked up by the vessel. The water cannon can also be used for fire fighting and for spreading dispersing agents.
