Terje Hemnes and Ingvar have worked together for years developing trawl technology for fisheries. When the Norwegian Clean Seas Association for Operating Companies took an initiative to bring fisheries technology entities into the Oil Spill Cleanup activities, Terje and Ingvar responded to this challenge, received financing and started working towards new solutions based on fisheries technology thinking. Over two years a number of possible solutions were tested and evaluated in model scale, and when the Wendy Schmidt Oil Cleanup X CHALLENGE was launched we had a working model that we believed in to enlist for the X CHALLENGE. The full scale adaptation to the OHMSETT tank is now being tested, and we look forward to the competition.
