The largest BoomVane™ we currently build, the 2m BoomVane™ is designed for coastal and offshore single vessel operations with medium to large oil booms and advancing containment and recovery systems.
The 2m BoomVane™ enables a single vessel to operate a wide swath sweep
with offshore oil booms, in various modes and configurations:
• Over-the-side sweeps on large vessels,
trailing sweeps on smaller vessels.
• “U” or “V” boom configuration, as well as
closed or open apex.
• One or two-sided .
The BoomVane™ is constructed as a cascade of vertical wings mounted in a
rectangular frame.The wing cascade is kept at an optimal angle to the water
flow by a fixed rudder mounted between folding arms. The rudder arms have
horizontal plates acting as stabilizer wings maintaining the vertical inclination
of the wing cascade. A float is bolted to the endplate of the the wing
cascade, to which an optional crane docking assembly can be fitted.
Powered by the water flowing past as the vessel advances, the 2m
BoomVane™ - held by a single tow line - swings out and away from the vessel
with the oil boom in tow. The 2m BoomVan™e is completely stable and
self-trimming in all sweep speeds, and insensitive to wave action.
Covered by multiple international patents and patents pending.
