Crude oil spills are still one of the most serious causes of ocean pollution. Crude oil spreads quickly, and can affect a wide range of area. So far, there has not been a sufficient solution that is quick enough to prevent the oil spread far from the coast. However, UVA can solve the problem for its flexibility and convenience and the vessels serve as replenishment system. Together they can promptly respond to crude oil spills, and thus reduce the pollution to the environment and prevent further oil spread.
