VRAKBOCK

2022

Bachelor Thesis

Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs) that operate in a swarm and recover the oil out of sunken shipwrecks. 

The VRAKBOCK is able to reach the wreck site on its own, where is holds on to the ship wall using electromagnets. Afterwards it drills a hole inside the wreck and pumps the oil into one out of three expandable balloon-tanks. 
When filled up, these tanks rise to the ocean surface, where they are getting collected and brought back to the shore. 
The oil is getting recycled and the balloon-tanks will be reused. The VRAKBOCK AUVs represent an effective way to protect the ocean from this massive threat posed by oil inside sunken shipwrecks.
