Shoreline Oil Boom

ABASCO Shoreline Barrier effectively contains oil spills in shallow water areas, such as shorelines, swamps, marshes and river banks. The barrier is especially effective in areas with fluctuating tides. The barrier consists of two water-filled tubular bladders running side-by-side the length of the barrier. On top of these bladders is a third, air-filled tubular bladder. In very shallow water the barrier rests on the bottom, preventing oil from seeping underneath the barrier. In water deeper than the height of the bottom bladders, the barrier floats, with the top air-filled bladder out of the water, and functions like a conventional boom.


Each barrier section has two air inflation/deflation/check valves and two water fill/drain valves. End connectors are marine grade aluminum ASTM connectors with ASTM retainer pins. Two sizes are available:

Overall height, in (mm) 20 (508) 28 (712)
Freeboard, in (mm) 10 (254) 14 (356)
Draft, in (mm) 10 (254) 14 (356)
Air and water chamber diameter, in (mm) 12 (305) 16 (406)

Spills from tankers are usually the result of a breach in the hull, either from running aground or hitting an object in the water. Major oil spills, such as the 2006 spill off the coast of Lebanon or […]
