BoomVane™ is a welcome advancement in oil spill cleanup technology, simplifying the challenges of boom deployment in fast water and from advancing vessel systems. These containment boom deployment and retrieval systems are lighter than "trawl doors". BoomVanes feature greater surface area and generates higher bollard pull at lower speeds. (Which is needed for towing oil booms.) It combines the science of sailing and the art of flying a kite, powered only by the water's current. The BoomVane helps with carbon offsets by eliminating the need for a second vessel. Elastec holds multiple international patents for the original BoomVane. Please fill out our BoomVane Questionnaire and tell us about your project.

The Elastec BoomVane is stable in variable currents due to the rudder being spaced distantly from the vanes. The rudder ensures angle of attack is maintained, developing a constant tow. 10 plus vanes provide largest wetted surface area for overall size. Smaller units work in rivers due to adjustable rubber facilitating reversing of direction and feature the lowest possible draft to facilitate nearshore and river applications. The BoomVane disassembles for transport and lays flat for shipping. It has a proven track record with over 500 units sold and has been proven in multiple oil spills. Five sizes for are available for multiple environments from shallow rivers to deep offshore applications.

BoomVane is faster, safer and less expensive than traditional booming methods.

500 ft / 150 m of boom can be deployed with only two people in half the time it takes for traditional booming methods. It is also less expensive than conventional booming, which requires boats, anchors and numerous responders.
