Our double flow technology is integrated within each of our cleanup vessels and has been tested with hydrocarbons in the following basins: CEDRE in Brest and OHMSETT in the USA.
It works as follows:
A suction flow is generated (by the turbine) in front of the ship (1) to capture the floating pollution (solid waste and hydrocarbons). Arms are deployed at the bow to increase the collection width. The polluted waters follow the flow and are pulled inside the ship, they are first filtered from solid debris with a meshed basket (2) and continue into a separation tank (3).
From the separation tank (3), the flow is separated into 2 parts.
