FlexiBelt - Containment Boom
FlexiBelt is a unique
sprung containment boom
designed to be used by ships during refueling and product transfer.
They form a small containment area, where hoses may be passing overhead,
between the ship and quay or ship and ship.
This technique may reduce the need to boom the whole
vessel or act as a primary containment area. The space between the
ship and quay is typically difficult to seal with conventional containment booms
due to the limited space and changing water levels.
FlexiBelt isolates the area between the vessel and
the seawall during fuel transfer. It will ride up and down against
the ships’ hull and seawall, automatically adjusting to the
changing distance and waterline.
Typically two FlexiBelts are deployed, one upstream,
the other downstream. Note: The quay will need to be solid construction.
FlexiBelts are available in a range of sizes, fitted
with full length fiberglass battens.
