Abstract Performance tests were conducted at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's oil and hazardous simulated environmental test tank (OHMSETT) on four commercial oil spill cleanup devices: the Sapiens Sirene skimming system, the Oil Mop remote skimmer, the Troil/Destroil skimming system, and the Versatile Bennett arctic skimmer. The objective of the test program conducted during the 1979 test season was to evaluate skimmer performance in collecting oil floating on water using several wave conditions, tow speeds, and skimmer operating parameters. Tests described in this report were sponsored by the OHMSETT Interagency Technical Committee (OITC). Members of the 1979 OITC were the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, U.S. Navy-SUPSALV, U.S. Navy-NAVFAC, U.S. Coast Guard, U.S. Geological Survey, and Environment Canada. A 16-mm film report, entitled '600 Foot Ocean', was produced to summarize the results presented in this report. This film is available through the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Research and Development, Oil and Hazardous Materials Spills Branch, Edison, New Jersey 08837.
