Oil Pollution, Oil Spill Containment Company Opec Celebrate 30 Years In Business

Opec Celebrate 30 Years In The Oil Pollution Business.

Online PR News – 23-February-2010 – – OPEC was founded by Mr. Peter Ilsley on February 1st 1980. Before the Company was founded Peter worked on the design and build of several oil pollution recovery machines during the late 1970's. Peter's background in the textile industry gave rise to the OPEC Mop Skimmer which cleans oil from the surface of the water.

Peter first came up with the concept having dealt with an oil spill in the textile mill he worked in during the 1970's using their own product to do the clean up.

Peter recalls:

‘The spill occurred in the boiler room of the factory. We had left out waste fibres from the carpet production line which quickly adsorbed the oil'

After 4 more years of development OPEC was born.

Since then OPEC has successfully sold more than 2000 machines and associated equipment for dealing with oil spills all across the world. From the USA, S.America, Europe, Africa and to the Far East, and Australasia.


Oil Pollution Environmental Control ltd is a UK based Company that was formed in 1980 to continue with the development and to capitalise on previous developments of specialist oil skimmer devices, namely mop skimmers which had been produced over the previous four years by the individuals who later became closely associated with the Company. The product range provides a very effective efficient system for controlling potential pollution by reducing.
