OHMSETT is the only facility where full-scale oil spill response equipment testing, research, and training can be conducted in a marine environment. The Ohmsett test tank allows testing of full-scale equipment. The tank`s wave generator creates realistic sea environments, while state-of-the-art data collection and video systems record test results. Our facility has proven to be ideal for testing equipment, evaluating acquisition options, and validating research findings. Government agencies, academia, public and private companies use Ohmsett as a research center to test oil spill containment/clean-up equipment and techniques, to test new designs in response equipment, and to conduct training with actual oil spill response technologies. The development of standard tests over the years that also led to ASTM standards is the biggest asset. These are repeatable and accepted worldwide.
