Oil Booms

Protect Marine Environment from Oil Spills -

Oil booms are primarily used to protect marine areas from the damage caused by oil discharge. They also serve to protect marine areas from unwanted debris.

Oil booms are primarily used in port and pipeline projects, and can be implemented in marinas and waterways as well.

As most of our other products, our Ecobarrier Oil Boom range is manufactured in the UAE. Besides product delivery, the full service cycle of installation, maintenance and removal can also be provided.

Our contracting background allows us to offer tried and tested products. As the Ecobarrier range has been used on our own projects, we know what works and what does not work.

Fence Booms

Our Ecobarrier Fence Booms are typically used for static or low current applications, featuring a series of flat panels that float on the water to contain oil and debris.

The floats are closed-cell to avoid taking up any water. Manufactured in UV stabilized PVC membrane fabric, the booms are fitted with zipties (class I) or ASTM slide connectors (class II) for easy coupling of the panels and quick deployment.

They can be deployed much faster than any other containment boom, due to their design. Our Ecobarrier Fence Booms come in five sizes.

Solid Flotation Booms

Ecobarrier Oil Booms: Solid Flotation Booms

Our Ecobarrier Solid Flotation Booms can be deployed in various water environments, ranging from low to moderate and high currents.

It is a general purpose boom that will provide years of performance. The boom is made of UV stabilized PVC membrane with chain ballast, grab handles and anchor points, making it easy to install.

They are available in different sizes and tensile strengths. We also provide solutions for custom requirements.

Permanent Booms


Our permanent boom – the Ecobarrier Harbour Boom – is a heavy-duty, durable oil boom designed to stay in the water for years with minimum maintenance.

Typical installations include petrochemical shipping terminals, desalination plants and marinas.

The Ecobarrier Harbour Boom is constructed of very durable high tensile material. Its floats are rotary-moulded, foam filled, long and wide, providing superior buoyancy and high stability in rough water, and eliminating the need for bottom ballast to keep the boom upright.

Emergency Oil Booms

Ecobarrier Oil Booms: Emergency Oil Boom

A rapid deployment, air-inflated boom for oil spill containment in protected waters with waves up to 0.3 meters.

The rapid response, air-inflated oil boom has been used extensively for both inshore and offshore applications. The boom is inflated on-site via a unique blower system, and offers the advantage of a high buoyancy to weight ratio, excellent durability and stability.

It is designed not only for efficient containment of oil, but also for prevention of oil transfer to beach areas. The boom can be either deployed around an oil spill or attached to a spill response vessel in a sweep operation.
