Types of Storage
Oil Spill Response Barges (OSRB)
Nearly all MSRC OSRBs are rated for the Oceans environment and may be used for storage of recovered oil or skimming operations. They range in size from 11,000 bbls to 68,000 bbls.
Aluminum Storage Barges
A small barge used for recovered oil storage that is either moored in the water or transported on trailers and deployed into the water by a crane and typically used in protected waters. These barges are pushed or towed by small workboats and support on water and near-shore skimming operations. They may also be anchored for use as deck storage.

These barges can be pushed or towed by small workboats and support on water and shoreline skimming operations for storage of recovered oil and water mixtures. They may also be anchored for use as deck storage for recovered oily solids, for storage of spill supplies and other support items.
Towable Storage Bladders
Towable Storage Bladders come in a variety of sizes and can be used in varied operating environments. They are towed behind appropriate sized vessels and are used to temporarily store and transport oil water mixtures from on water recovery operations.
