Buoy fence / Oil spill countermeasure

Buoy fence

Buoy fence; Oil fence robot to solve marine pollution caused by oil spills.
'Buoy fence' is a system that helps respond to oil spills accidents quickly. In the event of an oil spill
caused by a ship accident, boats sailing near the site quickly shut down the oil spill with a 'Buoy fence'
installed nearby. It also helps rescue teams from land to put out an initial response before they come,
thereby it reduces the marine pollution caused by oil spills and protects the marine ecosystem.
