About Ayles Fernie

Ayles Fernie International Ltd, specialises in the design and manufacture of Oil Dispersant Spray Systems. Recognised as World Leaders in this field, the company has been established for over 20 years and supplies a full range of ship, aircraft and helicopter mounted spray systems together with approved low toxicity type 2/3 dispersants.

Marine Systems

Dispersant spray systems for marine applications are supplied in the form of diesel powered portable units (BOATSPRAY and ECOSPRAY) or electric installed systems (CLEARSPRAY).

These systems are available in a variety of sizes and are offered with a comprehensive range of options which allow us to configure the system to meet specific customer requirements.

Aircraft Systems

Aircraft dispersant spray systems are designed and certified for specific aircraft types and models. Our fixed wing aircraft systems are called NIMBUS and each individual system takes the name of the aircraft for which it is certified.

Current systems which have been delivered include the NIMBUS L382G for the Lockheed L382G “Hercules” aircraft and the NIMBUS C295 for the Airbus C295. Other NIMBUS systems are at the design stage.
