TESTS OF OIL RECOVERY DEVICES IN BROKEN ICE FIELDS. PHASE I
This is the final report of full size tests of two oil spill recovery devices, the Lockheed Clean Sweep Model R2003 and the Marco Pollution Control Class I Oil Recovery System, operating in a simulated Arctic environment incorporating below freezing temperature and ice infested waters. Tests were conducted with both devices in broken fresh water ice and salt water ice, with No. 2 diesel oil and a crude oil selected to closely match the properties of Prudhoe Bay crude oil, at temperatures of +25F and +15F. These tests demonstrated that with minor hardware modifications and the proper operating procedures, both devices will successfully recover crude oil and No. 2 diesel oil spilled in a broken ice field of moderate icepiece size.
