Spill Response Scenerios
Arctic conditions are one of the most difficult environments for oil spill response operations. Elastec manufactures equipment to make this tough job easier. Our American Fireboom for insitu burning of oil (ISB) has been successfully tested in arctic conditions.
Responding to oil spills in rivers and fast-moving water can be challenging, without the proper tools, spilled oil can quickly move downstream and contaminate miles of banks and waterways.
From the Exxon Valdez oil spill incident in 1989 to the Deepwater Horizon blowout in the Gulf of Mexico in 2010, Elastec’s offshore oil spill response equipment has expanded from high-performance fire booms to include precision dispersant systems and mechanical skimming operations.
Oil is transported through pipelines all over the world. Safety is the pipeline industry’s number one priority, which is why most pipeline environmental managers prefer Elastec oil spill recovery equipment.
Elastec offers workshops to share the knowledge of environmental and spill response industry experts in a comfortable classroom setting at our Illinois facilities. Responders learn to operate Elastec equipment on land and in water to augment response tactics. Engineers and consultants experience the “whys and hows” of product performance criteria and modeling principles.
