The 1m BoomVane™ is a device for oil boom deployment in rivers and waterways. This powerful yet light and handy tool makes spill control and recovery possible without the need for boats, anchors or fixed installations of any kind. The BoomVane 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.
