THE DESIGN, CONSTRUCTION AND TESTING OF A ROUGH WATER DISC-DRUM OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM

This paper covers the detailed design, construction, and testing of the Lockheed rough water disc-drum oil recovery system developed for the Coast Guard. It is 27 ft wide, 24 ft long and 8 ft high, has a 20-in. waterline and weighs 14,070 lbs. The activity associated with this spilled-oil recovery unit was approached as the first full-scale hardware phase of an evolutionary program that included concurrent Coast Guard development of surveillance, containment, and removal systems. This activity was designed primarily to provide the hardware and plans for the full-scale open-sea evaluation of the technology and procedures to conduct oil-spill control and recovery operations.
