The 2000 gallon per minute oil recovery system (ORS) consists of a weir/basin recovery unit, a pumping and power system, a control system, and handling and packaging components. The weir/basin recovery unit contains primary and secondary weirs for effecting the collection and separation of floating oil from the water surface. Both weirs are supported by discrete foam flotation elements which allow the unit to be highly surface-conforming. This report presents the results of the at-sea tests conducted on the Ocean System, Inc., Oil Recovery System (ORS). The tests were conducted without oil, the purpose being to qualify the ORS with respect to strength, stability, operational function, ease of handling, compatibility with the Coast Guard buoy tenders.
