0.3m BoomVane™

The .3m BoomVane is a device for deploying oil containment boom into shallow rivers and other waterways by harnessing the power of the current. This BoomVane is designed for both shore-based and vessel operations with shallow draft oil boom. This is the smallest BoomVane in our range for particularly shallow waterways with a water depth greater than .5m

The .3m BoomVane is constructed as a cascade of vertical wings mounted in a rectangular frame. Powered by the current, the BoomVane, held by a single mooring line only, swings out towards the opposite shore with the oil boom in tow. This powerful yet light and handy tool enables rapid boom deployment - it can be operated in waters with heavy traffic since the control rudder allows for fast and effortless system retrieval from mid-stream.

As a fast-water tool, the BoomVane works equally well when deployed off a vessel. In this mode of operation, the vessel’s progress through the water powers the BoomVane. Powered by the water flowing past as the vessel advances, the BoomVane, held by a single tow line, swings out and away from the vessel with the oil boom in tow.

BoomVanes operate in water speeds ranging from 1 to 5 knots. As all BoomVane models are self-balancing, no adjustments or trimming is required.

Elastec holds multiple international patents for the original BoomVane.
