HarbourFlex 36/150 Oil Containment Boom
Star Africa offers the HarbourFlex Containment Boom, which is designed to be left in the water constantly for years. Typical installations include petrochemical shipping terminals, protection for power plant water intakes, and debris barriers for desalination plants, marinas and separation ponds.
- HarbourFlex “L” is constructed of very durable high tensile material. The HarbourFlex floats are roto-moulded and foam filled. They are longer and wider than competitor products. The larger float size provides superior buoyancy and higher stability in rough water. They also eliminate the need for bottom ballast to keep the boom upright. This boom needs very low maintenance and can be left in the water for years with minimum maintenance.
- To Connect or disconnect, simply unbolt the top fastener and raise the handle up approximately 2" (50mm). This gate is designed so large waves or tidal change will not affect its performance. Upon re-attachment, simply raise the handle again, guide the boom into the slots, drop the handle and re-bolt the top fastener..
- The Harbourflex Gate System also facilitates a quick, easy connection to an emergency response boom. In that case, the Gate would be installed on the Harbourflex Boom permanently and the emergency response boom would connect to it during the deployment.
