Containment Boom Installation

Darcy’s client, an oil distribution company that delivered by the means of a canal barge system, needed a way of protecting the watercourse when filling / delivering from any leakages. After a site visit, our client required a system that enabled any oil that escapes to be captured within the boom system.


  • The boom on this site is a 33ft containment boom designed to contain oil spillages.
  • The boom is on standby and not deployed unless they have a spillage when unloading the oil off the barge on the canal.
  • The boom is deployed across the river using a pulley mechanism that locks into place on the opposite side of the river.
