A special purpose containment boom that utilises water ballast
DESMI offers a diverse range of inshore and coastal oil containment booms to meet your operational needs, whether that is fast response, ease of deployment or longevity.
RO-BOOM BEACH is a special purpose containment boom that utilises water ballast. The water is pumped into two adjacent tubes along the bottom of the boom. This water acts as ballast when the boom is floating; once the boom is stranded these tubes sit on the ground and form a seal. The two fins running the length of the water tubes aid this effect. The RO-BOOM BEACH is able to make the transition between the water and land, which prevents the spread of oil in these regions.
RO-BOOM BEACH can be deployed on beaches with relatively low waves, swamps, lagoons and other areas where the water level is shallow or changes due to tide, rain or flooding occur.
RO-BOOM BEACH is fitted with a single air tube along the top of each section. This chamber is inflated and the boom can be towed to the deployment location. Once on site the water tubes are filled. Sections are connected with ASTM aluminium quick connectors fitted to the ends of each boom segment.
RO-BOOM BEACH can be connected to traditional booms such as the TROILBOOM or RO-BOOM where the water depth is sufficient.
