25 BeachTech™ units removing oil from Gulf Coast beaches

After a series of successful tests and proof-of-capability demonstrations on Gulf coast beaches, BP purchased 25 BeachTech™ beach cleaning machines.

Multiple tests and evaluations conducted for over two weeks by Bp, Hepaco and Local/Federal Official added to the previous experiences gained by BeachTech™ from the 2009 Sunshine Coast and the 2003 Prestige oil spills, clear-ly proved that the sifting technology from BeachTech is the “best practice” solution when removing oil from beach sand.

The most important key enabling equipment to be successful is removing all raking tines and simply sifting the sand to capture the oil and tar balls.

After the initial testing, BP ordered five BeachTech™ units which are already working on the beaches in Alabama where oil has come ashore. BP ordered an-other 20 BeachTech units the week of June 21 which will be deployed to other beaches in Alabama and Florida so those beaches also can be cleaned quickly and efficiently on an on-going basis.

Since June 1, BeachTech™ has had an advance team task force on the ground in the Gulf, every day, to help with what needs to be done. According to Scott Merrill, Manager for North America BeachTech™ Operations, “Regardless of where oil threatens beaches and no matter how long it takes to clean up the oil, BeachTech’s equipment, additional manufacturing capacity, service support, and beach-cleaning consultation expertise will be used to help ensure that the sugar-sand beaches of the Gulf Coast are restored to their natural beauty.”
