The solution to avoid the pollution of waters by oil tanker is a oildisposingstation which swims in the ocean.
It is made of a big foil, which is shaped into a 3-dimensional building. A waveformed tub develops, which offers place for two oil tanker. The tub closes its barrier when the tanker ist inside the dock. The oil tanker rinses its tanks inside the dock. The oil swims on the water surface
and has no possibility to distribute in the ocean. Swimelements
suck off the oil. They are powered by wave-energy and swim inside the tubes and reach the whole washed-out oil. To get emptied the full swimelements
are navigated to the nearby harbour.
