Existing concepts
The largest potential for improving mechanical oil recovery in Arctic and ice-covered waters will probably be further improvement and adaption of existing concepts. The objective of this task is to test existing concepts for mechanical recovery of oil in ice coverede waters.

A number of promissing concepts for oil recovery in ice covered waters has been identified.

This task will

  1. Document the capability of existing mechanical recovery equipment
  2. Suggest improvements on mechanical recovery equipment 
  3. Evaluate the potential for use in ice-covered waters.
