Team Story: 

Lamor, as a company, has been in the oil spill response business since 1982 and is continuously developing new concepts, technologies, methods and products for efficient oil spill response in all kind of environments. We have an extensive practical experience of real oil spills covering 3 decades of operations. We were heavily involved in the DWH oil spill in 2010, and short after this we heard about the announcement of the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE. We think this is a very good opportunity for us and others to demonstrate practical and efficient recovery technologies with a worldwide interest. We feel we have an obligation to enter the competition as the world leading OSR equipment provider, and we also feel this is a positive and fun way to improve on the technology. Further, the prize is attractive enough to cover the costs of participating.

Team Quote: 
"We are extremely happy about this X CHALLENGE as we believe it will result in new ideas, methods and technologies for the benefit of the environment. As all in our team and company have a special personal relationship with the sea and maritime environment, we are happy, whoever wins the competition, that all participants has extended their innovative processes to act towards solutions for cleaner seas."
