Abstract:

Current options for upgrading oil spill response equipment for the Coast Guards National Strike Force NSF were investigated. Specific systems and equipment addressed included oilwater separation systems, temporary storage devices, skimmers and pumps. In addition, a concept for an alternative design for the NSFs skimming barrier retrieval system has been proposed. A worldwide survey of oil spill response equipment was conducted to identify candidate replacement equipment. Evaluation criteria were developed and applied in the screening of prospective equipment. Generic test and evaluation parameters are presented to provide a means of assisting in future evaluations of potential equipment.
