Description

Alion investigated a new approach for removing oil from ice-infested waters. They leveraged their submersible, remotely operated vehicle (ROV) technology to develop a system to deploy and maneuver a skimmer underwater to the location of the oil where it would then surface and begin recovery operations. This technology could advance industry's ability to remove oil from otherwise inaccessible locations. During this effort Alion developed a proof of concept prototype which was tested at the Ohmsett facility.
