OIL SPILL RESPONSE EQUIPMENT


For effective mechanical recovery of spilt oil and for protection of shorelines, PAJ has mainly installed oil containment boom, oil skimmers and tentative storage tanks in stockpile bases. Also, based on the lessons learnt from the past major oil spill incidents, such as the case in Alaska or in the Arabian Gulf, very popular and field-proven devices have been selected for the equipment to be stocked. Each items of the equipment, together with its accessories, is stored in dedicated containers to facilitate prompt lending and transportation in an emergency.

Boom gInflatable flotation boom, Hi-Sprint 1500h(Vikoma, UK)
FreeboardF60 cm, DraftF90 cm, Unicon-joint
250 m/10 f container,

500 metres can be deployed in less than twenty minutes. This speed is due to the innovative features of single point inflation, a continuous air feeder sleeve, and a one way valve to every 3m chamber. The boom's continuous cylindrical shape, coupled with low air inflation pressure increases flexibility, and produces a very responsive containment system. The high buoyancy to weight ratio gives good wave following capability.
