EU-MOP – Robots to the rescue!

Elimination units for marine oil pollution. The EU-MOP project has created a fleet of autonomous units that work together to clean up small oil spills. Being small and unmanned, they are ideal for use in locations that are inaccessible to larger, manned vessels. The EU-MOP team is now keen to develop the technology further.
