BSEE OSRD Chief and USCG Office of Marine Environmental Response Policy Chief Visit Ohmsett
The 42-foot long oil skimmer vessel was placed in the tank at Ohmsett to test its oil recovery rate. The vessel, with an integrated skimmer, was shipped from France for the test. Ohmsett Facility Manager Bill Schmidt was on-hand to coordiante the visitors' tour of the test, where he took the group both onboard the vessel and along the main and auxiliary bridges above the tank to view the test. The group then visited the facility's onsite oil/water laboratory where Ohmsett Senior Test Engineer Alan Guarino talked about the oils and dispersants used during research experiments conducted at the facility.
Skimmers Tested to ASTM Standards
During the months of June and July the skimmers tested at Ohmsett included the Elastec/American Marine TDS 118G drum skimmer, the CRUCIAL Inc. Mop Wringer, and the Lamor LWS 500 weir skimmer. Additional skimmers will be tested throughout the year.

Ohmsett Staff to Attend IOSC 2014 in Savannah, GA
IOSC is the ideal setting for the international response community to come together and explore the latest technology and best practices in response operations through the exchange of ideas and lessons learned from actual spill responses and research around the world.
Attend Session #13: Cutting Edge Techniques and Research 2 to hear about the Testing of Oil Recovery Skimmers in Ice during Ice Month at Ohmsett. This Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement (BSEE) funded test will be presented by Paul Meyer where he will discuss the 10 skimmers that were tested in various ice conditions using the ASTM F2709 Standard Test Method for Determining Nameplate Recovery Rate of Stationary Oil Skimmer Systems.
Ohmsett's exhibit on the conference floor, Booth #224 , will showcase the latest testing, training, and research conducted at its facility. Stop by our booth to discuss your requirements and future projects.

BSEE Sponsors "Ice Month" at Ohmsett
During this unique event, mechanical response equipment currently used or being evaluated for use by the U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard will be tested in the tank under various simulated Arctic conditions using synthetic oil. Findings will be used to help improve mechanical response technologies, and to initiate the development of standards for the assessment of equipment recovery capabilities and efficiencies when used in broken ice environments.
