Bottsand class oil recovery ship


Bottsand class oil recovery ship

The Bottsand class oil recovery ships (Type 738) of the German Navy are intended for seawater pollution control. Therefore, the ships feature a bow which can be opened by 65 degrees. This creates an area of more than 40 m² to collect oil-polluted seawater. The water is pumped into the ship, where it will be cleaned and separated from the oil. One ship can clean up to 140 m³, polluted with a 2 mm oil slick, per hour.
