NOFI 1000 Series
The NOFI 1000 series is a reliable boom especially designed for optimal performance in demanding conditions. The oil booms are developod for use in open oceanareas, from exposed coastal areas to offshore areas. Standard
freeboard diameter is 450mm, 600mm, 800mm and 1000mm.
The oil boom consists of individual air filled floaters which gives high flexibility in the sea and high operational safety. The freeboard and skirt are made of heavy duty oil resistant PVC coated fabric. The feather net between the bottom tension member and the skirt gives flexibility, laminar flow patterns below surface and the independent air chambers give excellent wave following characteristics above. The double layer of fabric, soft Dynamic Response Connectors and easy mode of operation make the 1000 series a reliable high seas boom.
Controlled tank tests have documented that the NOFI boom with feather net can tolerate a higher towing speed than conventional booms without net. US Coast Guard performed tests that demonstrated that the oil boom contained the oil at towing speeds of up to 1,2 knots.
