JBF SCIENTIFIC TO DELIVER FAST-RESPONSE SKIMMERS; SIX CATAMARANS REPRESENT GROWING NEED FOR NEAR-SHORE CAPABILITIES

 SOUTHWEST HARBOR, Maine, April 30 /PRNewswire/ -- JBF Scientific of Maine today announced contract awards for six of its new oil spill recovery vessels designed to operate in the fast response and shallow water environment. The State of Texas G.L.O. has contracted for five 22-foot skimmers, and Irving Oil Limited of St. John, New Brunswick, Canada, has ordered the company's new 45-foot catamaran.
 The State of Texas G.L.O. plans to position the shallow-water skimmers strategically along the Gulf Coastline for rapid response. The skimmers operate with specially treated, industrial duty inflatable catamaran pontoons, and allow for retraction of the oil recovery module for fast response.
 The new Irving Oil vessel will be the first of its kind in eastern Canada and is the result of a joint venture between JBF and STENPRO of Liverpool, Nova Scotia. Constructed in aluminum, the 45 x 15 foot catamaran will be capable of collecting 11,314 bbls/day of water-free oil, transiting at 15 knots, and storing 4,000 gallons of recovered oil onboard.
 JBF Scientific Company, Inc., founded in 1969, is a worldwide leader in the design and manufacture of oil spill recovery systems. The company has delivered over 130 systems worldwide that range from 600 ton multipurpose ships to increasingly popular near-shore solutions being purchased to comply with tightening environmental regulations.
 JBF also operates its Trans-Tech division, specializing in the manufacture of aluminum tank truck bodies. Trans-Tech has become the leader in supplying the New England region with petroleum tankers.
