FlexiBelt is a floating fuel transfer boom designed for ship-to-ship or seawall-to-ship refueling and product transfer. It forms a small containment area where hoses may be passing overhead, between the ship and quay or two ships. FlexiBelt may reduce the need to boom the whole vessel. American Marine, a division of Elastec, has been manufacturing quality floating boom and barrier products since 1967.

The space between the ship and quay or between ships is typically difficult to seal with conventional containment booms due to the limited space and changing water levels. FlexiBelt isolates the fueling area and will ride up and down automatically adjusting to the changing distance and waterline.

Typically two FlexiBelts are deployed, one upstream, the other downstream. Note: The quay must be solid construction.

FlexiBelts are available in a range of sizes and fitted with full-length fiberglass battens.
