“A Whale” is here. Will it work?

by admin on July 1st, 2010

All right, after 70 days of this, I know everyone is a little cynical and pessimistic. But A WHALE has arrived in Louisiana. Now, in case you missed it A WHALE is as you might have guessed, one big boat. It stands over 100 feet tall and is over 1100 feet long. It is the brainchild of Nobu Su who founded Taiwan Maritime Transport, and is as you might expect incredibly wealthy. So, if your third grader said ” why don’t they just have a giant ship suck up all the oil, like mowing the yard”‘, and you thought what a great idea, this man had the deep pockets to say” Why not?”. He had hundreds of engineers and other workers rush to completely overhaul and prepare the ship, and by cutting 12 vents in the bow and arranging huge tanks to hold oily water, and separate everything out and discharge the remaining mixture over the side, they hope to be able to handle FIFTEEN MILLION GALLONS of oil/water mixture A DAY. The BP response since the beginning of this disaster has been less than 30 million gallons collected in over two months.
So has it been tested? No. Will it work? Nobody Knows. How much is Taiwan Maritime going to want from BP to use the boat if it does work? Nobody’s talking. Still it MIGHT work, and that could be huge, so for that we say let’s wait and see. Also Nobu Su is so confident that this work, he is rumored to already be building other ships similar to A WHALER.

  2. Sir,
    I am trying to find the contact information for Taiwan Maritime Transport Co. that owns A Whale. My company may be able to provide additional oiy water separators that would bring down the oil to water ratio to under one ppm. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated as I have had no luck with this. Thank you in advance.
