For active oil spill control, Gunderboom offers:
- TheSubsurface Oil Control System,and
- The custom-designed, full-depthAquatic Filter Barrier System.
The Subsurface Oil Control System has a filter barrier that extends from the surface flotation down into the water column to a prescribed depth, such as 8, 10 or 12 feet. The filter is made from an oleophilic (oilbinding) geotextile. As an extra feature, an oil-absorbing composite material can be added to the filter barrier to collect oil. As it was for the Valdez spill, the SOC is easily and quickly deployed to improve protection for ecologically sensitive areas.
