Manual Inflatable Oil Boom

NOFI 1000 Series

The NOFI 1000 series is a reliable manual inflatable oil containment boom, especially designed for optimal performance in demanding conditions. The NOFI 1000 series is developed for use in open waters, from exposed coastal areas to offshore areas. The NOFI 1000 series comes in a variety of freeboard sizes ranging from 450mm to 1200mm.

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 improves the flexibility and gives the NOFI 1000 series superior wave following characteristics. The double layer of fabric, soft Dynamic Response Connectors and easy mode of operation make the NOFI 1000 series a reliable oil containment boom for demanding conditions. Controlled tank tests have documented that the NOFI boom with a feather net can tolerate a higher towing speed than conventional booms without a feather net. Ohmsett test reports have demonstrated that the NOFI 1000 technology contained the oil at towing speeds of up to 1,2 knots.

NOFI 1000 Series Oil Boom  

The NOFI 1000 series is a reliable boom especially designed for optimal performance in demanding conditions. The oil booms are developed for use in open ocean areas, 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 the 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 a feather net can tolerate a higher towing speed than conventional booms without a net. US Coast Guard performed tests that demonstrated that the oil boom contained the oil at towing speeds of up to 1,2 knots.
