The new aquatic device designed to replace the functions of a second boom sweep vessel.

 

Meeting the requirements for the open water, sheltered water, and shoreline/river water environments.

 

The DESMI RO-KITE is a floating water kite based on a combination of trawl door and ram-air parachute principles. The purpose of this device is to act as a flow powered ‘tow vessel’ for oil boom systems, where strong currents or high speed are factors during an oil spill recovery. When launched, the RO-KITE, powered by the current and in combination with the RO-KITE’s unique design makes it swing out and away from the ship towing the outer end of the sweep formation. Use of the RO-KITE provides a cost efficient recovery of floating oil as it obviates the need of an extra towing vessel, a jib arm system or, in fast flowing waters, the need of several anchor points.
