NOFI Offshore 1000
The NOFI 1000 Series oil booms have been developed for use in open ocean areas, from exposed coastal areas to offshore areas.
The NOFI 1000 Series has been on the market for a number of years and in total, several thousand metres of the NOFI 1000 Series have been delivered all over the world.
Design and attributes
The standard freeboard diameter is 450 mm, 600 mm, 800 mm and 1000 mm. The oil boom is comprised of individual air filled floats which offers high flexibility at sea and high operational safety. The freeboard and skirt are constructed from heavy duty oil-resistant PVC coated fabric. Separate floats in 3 meter lengths are assembled inside the freeboard. The oil boom's design allows it to retain oil at higher towing or water current speeds than conventional oil booms.
The US Coast Guard carried out comprehensive tests that showed that the oil boom contained the oil at towing speeds of up to 1,2 knots. Normally, conventional oil booms would lose oil at towing speeds between 0,7 and 0,9 knots. Reference: US Coast Guard Report CG-D-19-96.
For coastal areas we recommend NOFI 450S and NOFI 600S. For harsher environments with higher waves we recommend the NOFI 800S and NOFI 1000S offshore oil booms
