NOFI Spill Raider Boom
From Boom Products
The Spill Raider is an automatic inflatable oil containment boom, designed to reduce deployment time, to be mobilized using minimum of deck space as well as being less resource demanding. This represents the perfect solution for any offshore response vessel requesting a high quality, easy to operate and reliable automatic inflatable offshore oil containment boom. The technology behind the NOFI 1000 series was implemented when designing the Spill Raider, leaving this boom with the same increased flexibility regarding towing speed and maneuverability, due to its superb wave following characteristics.
- The NOFI Spill Raider 800 Offshore Rapid Response
Boom represents a significant step forward for customers requiring rapid deployment and retrieval, involving a minimum of personnel. The system is designed for use in open ocean areas, and it only takes one person to launch and to retrieve. For a length of 300 m with 800 mm freeboard both deployment and retrieval time is approximately 15 minutes.
- The NOFI Spill Raider can be operated at towing or water current speeds of up to 1,2 knots (ref. test in Ohmsett test tank). Both inflation and deflation is performed from the reel end of the boom (“single point inflation”).The boom has a heavy duty PU/PVC fabric with excellent abrasion resistance, and thanks to a smooth surface it is very easy to clean.
- During development of the NOFI Spill Raider great emphasis has been placed on safety in deployment and use. Redundancy has been built into the system so that if one functional part fails the boom can still be operated due to a standby
