can be used in every oil spill scenarios
fast containment and concentration of the spread oil
applies the principles of swarm intelligence: robust, flexible, decentralized, self-organized
adapts dynamically and autonomous to the given conditions
can be used in harsh weather conditions
can be installed on oil tankers/deployed by helicopter
