An oil spill at sea is one of the most serious marine accidents that occurs frequently all over the world. This problem not only pollutes the marine environment, but also causes secondary damage to fishermen, animals, and plants that inhabit around the sea. To solve this problem, we suggest a concept design named OIL Collect Drone. In the event of an oil spill, an OIL collect drone immediately flies to an accident, sucks the leaked oil, and therefore prevents marine pollution. Oil collector of the drone promptly sucks the oil in case of emergency and prevents secondary damage so that it ultimately helps preserve the marine ecosystem.
