Suretank has launched the world's first heated mud container. Used for the transport and disposal of drill cuttings in the offshore oil and gas industry, the new container was developed in partnership with Norwegian company Onsite Treatment Technologies (OTT).

The heated mud container has all the standard features of an offshore mud skip and is fully certified to DNV 2.7-1 and EN 12079.

Donal Duggan, Group R&D Manager at Suretank, explained: "This is an extremely exciting development for us as it's the first of its kind and comes in response to an increasingly common problem as exploration moves to harsher environments. While operating in colder climates, the contents of the mud skips often become frozen and are rendered redundant for long periods of time. The heated mud container prevents this through a network of channels which allow heat to be input to the cargo, thereby thawing the contents sufficiently to empty the container."
