OIL SKIMMER / Concept for oil spill

OIL SKIMMER
OIL SKIMMER

Oil Skimmer is an environmentally friendly Skimmer that uses ocean currents to improve energy efficiency. After an oil spill, it will exchange information with fishing boats, satellites, and ships to clean up the spill. Its curved spills can easily collect large amounts of petrol. It also supports two-way driving and realizes large-scale electric storage by setting "liquid flow battery" at the drainage outlet. Therefore, Oil Skimmer constructs a rescue solution based on the physical properties of petroleum and environmental factors. It has high recovery efficiency, large oil carrying capacity and avoidance of secondary pollution.
