Vessel based water cleaning technology with 50,000 gallons/hour capacity using RLDVPT external combustion engineEdit

IN SHORT: A vessel with special hardware (arrangement for its production and montage is required) comes to the area of disaster and starts recovering the water spoiled by oil (a mixture, able to burn). Vessel-based, high performance water recovery hardware require a lot of electric power to operate and of course, a vessel needs a diesel fuel to continue working non-stop (e.g. 24h) in the area of disaster. It is possible to recover a few dozens of tonnes (m3) of spoiled sea water in 1 hour with our solution.

To let this work BRILLIANT, we researched and implemented the new type of external combustion engine called RLDVPT, designed to be a heart of OUTSTANDING electric power station, able to take heat energy from burning mixture. RLDVPT is a new type of external combustion engine and it uses, as input power, just heat. Solar energy (for example) is another source of energy to provide heat to RLDVPT to generate electric current. All required electric current for any type of best-fit water recovery station and for vessel movement in the area of disaster would be produced until spoiled sea water, able to burn, is exist in that area. From burning mixture, heat energy would power RLDVPT and RLDVPT would power with electric current the water recovering station. Chain of hardware operates quick, efficient and with high performance output. Given solution may be used IN ANY case of disaster in the world, current or future, when sea water is spoiled by oil. We recommend to use our water recovery station as complete solution with RLDVPT, as we see huge amount of waste put to the Gulf of Mexico daily and just small amount to be utilized by local forces.

Brief Description of Technology:

Russian private-owned company (LLC) has an efficient, outstanding technology for oily sea water recovery (=cleaning) with high volume (=high performance) of processing per hour (e.g. 200m3 per hour = 50000 gallons per hour is possible to clean up by 1 vessel), and the oily sea water recovery may occur non-stop (= 24h a day), where each vessel doesn't need to leave the area of disaster (=return to the base) for refuel, so cleaning of sea water from oil would be less expensive and much faster. Positive results for volumes of cleaned sea water with our solution may be compared to the volumes of sea water, damaged by spill of oil daily, in the areas of such type of disaster.

Each vessel, participating in the cleaning operations, should be equipped with 2 (two) sets of hardware, researched and developed by us.

The 1st (first) set of our hardware cleans oily sea water by splitting (separating) sea water and oil. Clear sea water goes back to the ocean. A variety of certain filters may be utilized to execute this cleaning procedure (chemical, biological, electrical, etc...). All of them need a lot of electric power to operate.

Oil, which is left onboard of the vessel is used to burn and thus to power the 2nd (second) set of our hardware, which is energy transformation unit (ETU). We need heat from oil for our patented external combustion engine of very latest modification, capable to generate up to 2MW (megawatts) of electric power. Our ETU heart is RLDVPT engine (= turbine) which technical specification exceeds by key parameters the other external combustion engines in the world, as they are typically built with eng. Stirling termodynamic cycle. Efficiency and performance of RLDVPT is based on new (modified) termodynamic cycle invented and verified by eng. Lukianov (see Wikipedia for reference, possibly in Cyrillic).

ETU generates electric power, which is applied to 1st set of hardware (= power it) for its 24h operation to clear oily sea water and to move a vessel across the area of disaster. NO diesel fuel is required after a vessel is arrived in the area of disaster. Until oily sea water exist in the area of disaster, a vessel may move and clear the water with high efficiency and high performance.
