US OHMSETT test certification
Real life tests were carried out in the US Coast Guard OHMSETT’s wave/tow tank facility from the 18th to the 22nd of August 2014.
The Workglop® 128 was tested in different settings to replicate at best the reality of offshore conditions: waves of different heights and wavelengths, different collection speeds (0-3 knots), and various oil viscosities (medium to heavy).
In each testing configuration, the Workglop® 128 recovered under normal conditions between 95 % and 100 % of the spilled oil, with a collection rate of 50 m3/h.
The Workglop® 128 has demonstrated the capabilities of Ecoceane’s vessels (same cleaning technology in all vessel ranges) to collect all types of floating hydrocarbons without creating any emulsion.
These tests have validated our technology which makes it possible to transfers hydrocarbons during collection, with various viscosities, even in rough seas (wave simulation), thus allowing to do oil spill cleanup operations 24 hours a day, and to transfer collected hydrocarbons continuously into a succession of storage vessels.
All Ecoceane’s vessel are designed with the same patented technology which ensures the most efficient equipment in term of oil spill cleanup operations.
