Fastwater Oil Spill Response

Fastwater oil spill solutions can be challenging. Without the proper tools, spilled oil can quickly move downstream and contaminate miles of banks and waterways. The Elastec BoomVane™, Circus Skimmer and Rapid River Response system are just a few of the unique and patented technologies that work in fast moving waters. The new X150 skimmer is able to encounter and process oil in advancing and stationary modes. OptiMax 6 x 6 in river boom is easily deployed with the BoomVane™ and eliminates a web of ropes and vessels.
