Creative Ways To Use A 747

World's Largest Aerial Application Tool Standing By To Support Oil Spill Response

The Evergreen Supertanker has successfully secured its American Society for Testing & Materials (ASTM) Oil Spill Certification, and is standing by at Gulf Port, Mississippi, prepared to help combat the massive oil spill spreading across the Gulf of Mexico.

Built on the utilitarian platform of a Boeing 747, the Evergreen Supertanker was designed to disperse liquid, foam and gels to meet the needs of the mission at hand. Having full certification for fighting fires, Evergreen now has the necessary certification to manage oil spills. With a payload of more than 20,000 gallons and a response time of 600 mph, it has more than eight times the drop capability and twice the speed of other air tankers. The large capacity of the patented pressurized system attacks oil spills by dispersing EPA-approved products for aerial application, and is able to cover an area of more than 200 feet wide and greater than 300 miles in length; equating to more than 7,272 acres of coverage.

Evergreen has a long history of providing mission critical support to U.S. government agencies. During Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, the company deployed more than 21 helicopters supporting emergency operations. Most recently, Evergreen deployed aviation support to the earthquake-stricken Haiti, and is continuing to provide passenger and cargo movements throughout the area.
