Full testimonials and reviews of the Orca

Darrell Wilson, ex USA Coastguard Chief and current president of MTI Network U

SA

“I watched your video and I must say that I was very impressed. During my Coast Guard career and almost 10 years with MTI Network, I have been around a lot of spills and cleanup operations and I know how difficult the equipment can be. To watch it work showed what good, thoughtful engineering can accomplish. Watching the ORCA in action was impressive.”

“We feel that your technology can become a mainstay within the market place. As we stated in our call, the technology may have been ahead of its time 15+ years ago, but now it would appear that THIS IS THE TIME to truly work toward offering this as a versatile, highly effective, low cost solution for many years to come.”


ORCA user Chris Richards, Oil Spill Services Manager, Singapore Oil Spill Response Centre stated:

shh“All the pump types (including DOP 250 screw pumps) very quickly jammed up, having filled themselves with oil which then became virtually solid. The only unit that worked and continued working successfully was our “ORCA” inductor unit – with its very large suction hose diameter and few moving parts.”


“The ORCA works faster and better than current competition in many environmental areas both on land and in water. Oil spills demand quick and reliable response times. That is where the ORCA excels. It is the first truly portable rapid oil recovery system, and as a result the ORCA can be on-board, ready to meet an emergency faster than any other equipment. In a large spill, oil can be transferred directly into any available tank, barge hold or other vessel of opportunity WITHOUT passing through the ORCA itself, thanks to its Universal Hatch Cover™.”

“The system is self-contained, with its power pack fitting INSIDE for compact shipping and storage.”

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
SINGAPORE OIL SPILL RESPONSE CENTRE IS PLEASED TO ADVISE WE HAVE PURCHASED AN “OIL RESPONSE CLEANING APPARATUS” “ORCA”.

IN MY MANY YEARS IN   OIL   SPILL   RESPONSE    I   HAVE    ATTENDED NUMEROUS SPILLS.

ONE WHICH WILL ALWAYS BE A HIGHLIGHT WAS MY SECONDMENT  TO SAUDI ARABIA BY THE AUSTRALIAN INSTITUTE  OF PETROLEUM  TO ASSIST THE GOVERNMENT,  AS A PLANNING ADVISOR,  TO CLEAN UP THE WORLDS LARGEST EVER OIL SPILL. A SKIMMER SUCH AS “ORCA” WOULD HAVE BEEN OF GREAT VALUE IN ASSISTING WITH THAT CLEAN UP.

THIS ADAPTABLE UNIT IS SUITABLE FOR TANK CLEANING OPERATIONS ON ALL SIZES OF CRUDE OIL TANKERS ALSO CLEANING   UP DEBRIS   AND GARBAGE FROM BEACHES AND RIVERS.

THIS   SKIMMER   APPARATUS    IS   HIGHLY   FLEXIBLE    AND    I   HAVE   NO HESITATION IN RECOMMENDING ITS PURCHASE BY COMPANIES OR GOVERNMENT.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN

FURTHER   TO   MY   ADVICE    OF   10/8/95    THE   ”ORCA”   HAS   HAD    SOME PRACTICAL USES OVER THE LAST SIX (6) MONTHS.

DURING A TRAINING SESSION AT OUR SHIPYARD AT JURONG THE “ORCA”

WAS DEPLOYED. THERE WAS QUITE A LOT OF RUBBISH  IN THE WATER. THIS INCLUDED TIMBER PAINT TINS AND COCONUTS.

MOST  OF THESE  ITEMS  INCLUDING  I GALLON TINS AND FULL  COCONUTS WERE RECOVERED.

FOLLOWING  AN  OIL SPILL IN ONE OF THE  SHIPYARDS  AN  OVERZEALOUS CREW  POURED  LARGE  QUANTITIES  OF DISPERSANT   OVER  THE  SPILLED OIL.   THERE WAS LITTLE WATER MOVEMENT AND LACK OF AGITATION. REMOVAL  OF THE MIXTURE  WAS  PROVING  A PROBLEM  HOWEVER  WITH THE  ”ORCA”    WE  HERE  ABLE  TO  REMOVE  IT  AND  WITH  HARDLY  ANY WATER- LESS THAN 5%.

A FURTHER  SPILL  OF DIESEL  AND  LUBES  OCCURRED  IN  OUR  SHIPYARD AND   ONCE   MORE   THE   ”ORCA”   WAS   DEPLOYED    WITH    SUCCESSFUL RESULTS AND SMALL QUANTIES OF WATER

ONCE   MORE   I   CAN   ONLY   EXPRESS    MY   SATISFACTION   WITH    THIS EQUIPMENT.

Call or write for more information about how the ORCA is a good investment for the environment today

The technology is owned by a private entrepreneur who conceived it in the wake of the Exxon Valdez oil spill disaster (1989).  To date 100% equity funded.

The project was shelved in 2001 due to competing personal priorities of the shareholder who now wishes to revitalize & launch it commercially on a global scale.

External funding is needed for the commercial launch:

  • The initial & basic business model is to manufacture & market ORCA units for sale to end users globally.
  • When critical mass is reached, an operating leasing model (i.e. “provider of cleanup services”) may be evaluated on merit & on a case-by-case basis.
