Detecting Oil Spills on Inland Waterways Pose Significant Challenges

Detecting oil spilled on inland waterways poses a significant challenge to pipeline operators due to:

  • Changing water levels and flow rates;
  • Presence of debris and suspended sediment;
  • Floating and submerged oil;
  • Ice cover for large portions of the year; and
  • Remote locations with no supporting infrastructure.

Bringing Value to Technology Evaluation by Simulating Realistic, Full-scale Conditions in a Controlled Environment

The project will identify potential technologies and set up realistic, full-scale trials to help operators select the best technology to rapidly and reliably detect oil spills on inland waterways. With the use of C-FER’s existing facilities and equipment, we can simulate realistic conditions and variables in a controlled environment.
