Energy giant buys 32 machines manufactured by the actor's company to fight oil spill in Gulf of Mexico

Three centrifugal oil-water separating machines manufactured by a company founded by Hollywood actor Kevin Costner are on their way to the Gulf of Mexico.

Energy giant BP PLC has purchased 32 of the machines from the Costner's Ocean Therapy Solutions to fight the oil spill in the Gulf caused by a broken well head leaking up to 60,000 barrels of oil a day.

The 2,000-kilogram machines will be deployed along 193 kilometres of the oil-scarred Louisiana shoreline over the next 60 days, according to Ocean officials, and three are headed there this weekend.

Costner said the machines can separate oil and water at a rate of 757 litres a minute without the use of chemical agents.Read more.
