OIL SEA HARVESTER

Obiettivo

The consequences of tanker accidents are often catastrophic, raising the issue of oil spills to the highest priority for the EU community. Analysing accidents like the recent ones of the Erika or Prestige, there is a clear need for vessels specifically designed to recover oil pollution at sea (with efficient recovery tools and decantation and storage capacities), which have onboard tools to help them detect and track the pollutants. The "Oil Sea Harvester" (OSH) project is addressing these needs. The intention is to have a fast ship on transit in order to be quickly on the scene of the accident to operate oil recovery when the spill is still well concentrated. It is also intended to have a ship as stable as possible with oil recovery tools as protected as possible from the sea in order to be able to operate in rather high sea states.
Specific objectives are:
-To develop an innovative trimaran OSH vessel fitted with PODs for good manoeuvrability on site
-To develop OSH oil recovery systems, a unique tool carriage holding the different tools
-To develop OSH oil recovery scenarios and needed associated systems
-To address other complementary missions.
Work plan include: project management, definition of OSH profile for oil recovery missions, Preliminary ship design, design of oil recovery systems, hydrodynamics and tank tests, development and prototype testing of tools and tool carriages, definition of oil recovery missions and other missions, safety and rules compliance, final project integration, economic analysis, documentation and dissemination. Consortium comprises 11 partners of 6 EU countries with complementary capabilities (large industry, industry SMEs, operators, research centers, university, classification society). Main deliverable of the project will be the definition of the complete integrated OSH concept (vessel, tools, systems), including its economical perspective.(ref. to call FP6-2003-Transport-3 in domain 2.5)
