Lamor – Larsen Marine Oil Recovery


Lamor was established in 1982 as a specialized and family-owned shipyard in Finland. The key breakthrough that directed the future course of the company was an elegantly simple technology invented by Lamor to recover oil from maritime spills: the brush skimmer. This invention established the framework for Lamor’s core philosophy: develop the simplest and most efficient technical responses to our customers’ individual oil spill challenges, anywhere in the world.
