OIL RECOVERY SYSTEMS FOR COAST GUARD COASTAL BUOY TENDERS. VOLUME 1. TECHNICAL REPORT; FINAL REPT

Available oil spill recovery systems were investigated for their applicability to be deployed from existing and proposed U.S. Coast Guard buoy tenders. These systems for use in ocean environments and coastal regions, included containment boom and skimming devices. Storage for the recovered fluid and possible separation of oil and water from the recovered fluids were investigated. It was found that the limited low speed maneuvering capability of the buoy tenders restricted the overall efficiency of the recovery process and the selection of the recovery systems. Additionally, the buoy tenders will have to be deployed with a barge or utilize floating dracones for storage as onboard tankage is not available for use. Suggestions for deployment are provided as well as recommendations for further investigations.
