Abstract:

A new type of inland oil skimmer, the CrowleyAlden A-4, has been procured and tested for final acceptance by the Navy. A program to identify a new inland oil skimmer was initiated because the existing small SLURP and medium DIP 1002 oil skimmers were not being utilized by the activities. The low utilization of these skimmers was attributed to poor operational efficiency under typical Navy oil spill conditions. The SLURP skimmer is ineffective in waves and labor intensive. The DIP 1002 skimmers is large, heavy, and complex to set up, operate, and maintain. Water pollution.
