Neoprene Oil Boom

The Neoprene Boom is a very flexible, heavy duty type oil boom for containment of oil especially for offshore and Arctic conditions, or for permanent installations in harbors. It is robust and durable, but light and very easy to deploy rapidly.

The unique design coupled with the light, but extremely durable vulcanized neoprene material, makes it possible to store up to 300 m (984 ft) on one compact storage reel. When the boom of model Autoboom is deployed from the reel, it is automatically inflated from a single air source at the end of the boom, which ensures rapid and safe deployment. Retrieval is also efficient, due to easy deflation onto the storage reel.

Upon inflation, the patented internal design automatically separates the cylindrical floatation chambers. Each Individual Buoyancy Chamber is isolated. If one air chamber should get damaged or deflated, adjacent chambers will not be affected and will remain inflated.  The neoprene boom can also be supplied with single air chamber inflation.

Foam Filled Boom

The Foam Filled Oil Boom (FOB) is a solid light-weight float containment boom that is easy to use and store. The boom is ideal for emergency and permanent use in sea conditions from calm to open water. The boom is ideal for use in lakes, harbors, power plants and refineries. The FOB can be utilized in all climatic conditions and environments, including Arctic conditions.

The booms are manufactured of PVC coated woven dtex polyester fabric in high visibility red color. The boom is UV and oil resistant with very low maintenance required.

The internal floats are made from closed cell foam. The boom incorporates reflectors supplemented by boom light pouches and chaffs for radar reflectors. The hot dip galvanized DIN 763 ballast steel chain is incorporated into the skirt and a belt strengthener is stitched to the top to make the boom more robust.

The boom is supplied with ASTM Z connectors, made in accordance with the ASTM F962 standard.

The Silt Curtain

The Silt Curtain is specially designed to be used in conjunction with a conventional containment boom when the problem is the presence of sediments drifting in the water, caused by dredging or other type of construction work in a port, harbor, river or lake.

These materials are often drifting at a greater depth than usually covered by the skirt of a containment boom.

The silt curtain has a 2000 mm (alternatively 4000 mm or 6000 mm) high skirt and comes in stretches of 25 m. It is made of a polypropylene fabric reinforced with a highly resistant PET fibre, which due to its drainage capacity allows water to pass through while efficiently retaining the sediments.

When silt curtains are used to enclose open-water pipeline disposal operations, the vast majority (95 % or more) of the sediments descends to the bottom of the disposal area where it forms a fluid mud layer. The remaining 5 % or less of the sediments is responsible for the turbidity in the water column.

The silt curtain is connected to the oil boom ballast chain with shackles. The stretches of silt curtain are connected to each other also using shackles, while the boom itself is connected up using its normal connectors (ASTM, Norwegian, UNICON, etc.).

FOB Booms for Coastal Areas

This flat foam floatation boom is designed for use in harbours or calm waters and is robust, lightweight and compact, used in 3knots without any problems.

These materials are often drifting at a greater depth than usually covered by the skirt of a containment boom.

Deployment and recovery
The floats, which are filled with closed cell foam, make quick deployment possible (typically 2 people and a light craft are needed). 250 metres of boom can be deployed in less than 5 minutes. The boom’s flat design means it can be stored on a manual or hydraulically driven winch and is easy to clean.


The boom is composed of 1-metre long independent flat floats which guarantee floatation in case of damage.

Connection Between Booms
Each section is fitted with standard quick connectors, which may be ASTM, UNICON or Norwegian type as required.


  • Easy and compact storage
  • Made of durable oil-resistant material
  • Quick and easy to deploy and recover
  • Easy to clean.

Permanent Containment Booms

Permanent Containment Booms are heavy-duty booms with high-density polyethylene floats.  The boom is particularly robust and is made to give a particularly long service life in installations where booms are used frequently and on a permanent basis.

Boom Design
A boom with a heavy PU or PVC vertical barrier fabric and symmetrically placed foam-filled high-density polyethylene floats.  The two halves of the floats are bolted together trapping the barrier fabric in between.

This gives rise to a particularly heavy-duty construction which is easy to maintain and repair on site. Most of the forces on the boom are absorbed by the ballast chain, which is shackled on to the lower part of the skirt. The ballast chain is connected between sections with “split-links” made from hot-dip galvanised steel.

Each section is fitted with marine grade aluminium ASTM connectors. Tools are not required to connect the sections together. Alternatively, Unicon or Norwegian type connectors may be delivered.

Beach Sealing Boom

Beach sealing booms provide an excellent seal against the shoreline in tidal areas: strong currents, areas exposed to strong tidal movements, rivers, estuaries and sheltered waters.

Boom Construction
Beach sealing booms have a triangular cross-section with a continuous air-filled tube above and two water-filled ballast chambers below.

The air filled tube has three internal buoyancy chambers. Thus, the boom floats as a conventional boom when working in waters with sufficient depth, and by effect of the weight of the ballast and its flexibility, seals the foreshore in low tide conditions.

Beach sealing booms are manufactured from premium quality PVC-coated polyester. This material is both strong and light, and gives rise to a hard-wearing and virtually maintenance-free product.

Beach Sealing Boom

On the underside of the boom there is a replaceable fabric, protecting the boom from wear and tear when working against abrasive surfaces. Each section is fitted with marine grade aluminium ASTM end connectors making the use of tools for connecting the sections together unnecessary.
