New concepts
The objective of this task is to initiate development of new oil spill recovery concepts and units for oil spills in ice-covered waters.

Four challenges are highlighted:

  1. Pumping of oils with high viscosity or extreme rheological behaviour.
  2. Recovery of oil trapped under ice.
  3. Recovery unit with high capacity for larger oil spills.
  4. "Multipurposeā€ equipment (for open as well as ice covered water)

Manufacturers of oil spill recovery equipment will be invited to submit ideas for improvement of oil spill recovery in ice-infested waters as a basis for potential part-funding through this JIP.
