Within just a few weeks and with more than 30 BeachTech beach cleaning machines operating, the beaches on the Gulf of Mexico could be almost fully restored to their original condition.
Beginning of July, our machines arrived at the Gulf coast via airfreight where the oil spill had happened a short time before. The first large amounts of oil of the Deepwater Horizon disaster had just reached the beaches of the region. Since then, our BeachTech machines have been working every night to fight the oil spill. The service providers assigned by BP kept moving their fleets of BeachTech beach cleaning machines from one city to the next, along the complete coastline, so that they could be right on the spot, wherever the oil threatened to land. In the past 8 weeks, the beaches could be almost fully restored to their original conditions. Once again, the sand looks smooth, beautiful and clean.
At the moment, there is no more oil coming towards the beaches. This break is used to screen the sand again, this time with especially fine meshes to get out the rest of even the smallest lumps of oil.
With the screening technique developed by BeachTech, the beautiful beaches in Alabama, Mississippi and in the North of Florida will be rid of the oil in a most impressive way. So that the recreation spirit may soon return and everything goes back to normal.
