System for effective oil slick combating
year of making
In case of an oil damage, the command for maritime emergencies has to act very fast. Therefore, the buoye is stored in airports near the coast.
Consequently, the buoy can be dropped right onto the oilslic by an aeroplane in no time at all.
After hitting the oil surface a gas cartridge inflates a radially symmetric system of tubes under water.
A finely woven net - stretched up by the tubes - floates up. Its very rough surface bonds the oil without any chemicals. Finally, the buoy can be retrieved by almost every boat by hitching the ringlike binding.
Every buoy is able to cover up to 2000 m2 The combination of many buoys allows to bond the widely spread oil surface much faster.
Additionally, the system can be applied during all weather conditions.
GPS and radar reflectors allow an easy location.
Seabirds are kept off by ultrasonic sounds.
In case of an emergency, plenty of buoys will be used. Consequently, its construction is robust and low-tech. It is stackable and easy to produce.
