Flow bench tests of a model rotating belt-Couette flow oil recovery device were conducted to evaluate its use in oil spill cleanup. These tests revealed that the device is capable of harvesting oils over a broad range of viscosities at the rates and purities specified by the EPA, if the inlet can be made to 'track' the water surface. Analyses were conducted to design a catamaran vessel suitable for mounting the Oil Pickup Unit (OPU) and also providing the requisite surface following performance. Vessel response analyses showed that the required surface following behavior cannot be provided by the catamaran itself, but can be achieved by floating the OPU and decoupling this assembly from the vessel in heave and surge.
