Why use Oil Containment Boom?
An oil boom, also referred to as a containment boom, is a temporary floating barrier designed to contain an oil spill. Oil booms reduce the possibility of pollution on shorelines, rivers, and oceans while collecting oil in thick surface layers to allow for easy recovery for your company.
They are effective in calm water, but as wave height increases oil or other contaminants can easily wash over the top of the boom and render them useless. In any oil spill, the use of a single conventional boom is not effective in protecting environmental resources, even with the correct draft and aspect ratio.
