The Super Skimmer - a huge supertanker customized to skim oil from the sea surface has arrived this week in the gulf to help clean up the BP oil mess.
According to Reuters the Super Skimmer just finished a 48 hour test run, but the results are inclusive. Apparently the sea is to rough right now to effectively skim off the spilled oil from the surface.
Theoretically "The Wale" can collect 21 million gallons per day of contaminated water.
I never heard about this special clean-up oil tanker before, but why has this Taiwanese miracle tanker not been sent to the gulf weeks earlier?
BP has published another update on the oil spill yesterday. Currently two containment systems continue to collect oil and gas flowing from the Deepwater Horizon’s failed blow-out preventer.
