COMBINED SKIMMER-BARRIER HIGH SEAS OIL RECOVERY SYSTEM

The development of an oil recovery system to be used in conjunction with the USCG's high seas oil containment barriers is described. The system was tested, and its recovery capability was good. It showed promise for better recovery when used on a large spill. Operational practicality was demonstrated in sea trials when the barrier was string towed, catenary towed, and moored in a tidal current.
