BP would like you to know that Kevin Costner’s machines are working — and they are excited by the results.

The company released a statement overnight declaring a second round of testing with the machines (the first failed due to clogging) a complete success and expressing optimism on using them immediately for cleanup.

“We were confident the technology would work but we needed to test it at the extremes. We’ve done that and are excited by the results,” said Doug Suttles, BP’s chief operating officer. “We are very pleased with the results and today we have placed a significant order with OTS [Costner’s Ocean Therapy Solutions] and will be working with them to rapidly manufacture and deploy 32 of their machines.”

Costner’s Ocean Therapy Solutions earlier stated that an order for 32 of the massive centrifuges could be completed by August 1st. Each one costs up to $500K and roughly 10/week can be manufactured. The largest can clean water at a rate of 200 gallons per minute, according to the firm.
