About MacBoom

 

MACBOOM® 800, 1000 and 1300 series are the ultimate oil containment boom systems for offshore oil spill contingency. MACBOOM® is manufactured 100% in Brazil based on well proven technology used in Norway by NOFO for contingency in the North Sea.

Single point, self inflatable technology utilizes a prepressurized inflation system which makes the boom fully operative when it's deployed. A single operator deploy 400 meters of MACBOOM® in less than 15 minutes.

Key features:

High Operator Safety

Minimal Deck Space - Reel Footprint Only

Very High Redundancy - 2 Separate Inflation Systems

Robust Design

Excellent Wave Following Characteristics

Services


We perform services, repairs and training for equipments operating in Brazil and also outside Brasil (Abroad).

Our service team is ready to go where the customer need.

.

Maintenance and repair

We perform maintenance and repair not only in our product but in all Offshore Oil containment boom systems existing in the Market.

We have a skilled Brazilian inhouse team of technicians, specialized in hydraulic and pneumatic as well as Fabric/PVC termo welders.

 

.

Spare Boom

To make the Service performance unique and avoid 100% a possibility of a Vessel downtime, we have built our own Macboom 1300 / 300m with Reel.

We keep it in stock dedicated for Service purposes. When you buy the equipment from us you will have this facility during warranty period, and also, during Services after warranty.

 

.

Spare parts

We keep all major parts in stock in our workshop in Rio de Janeiro, Brasil like: Fabric, connectors, hydraulic and pneumatic hoses, clamps, reduction gears, etc.

The material will be available for immediate despatch / shipping.

 

.

Fabric/PVC
(Laboratory fabric test)

From a piece of fabric we can analise, in laboratory, fabric substances characteristics and limitations: Fabric (type), thickness (mm), grammage (g/m²), breaking strength/traction (Kgf/5cm), elongation at break (%), tear resistance (Kgf), and adhesion.

Time machine simulation: We can advance the life cycle and simulate acelerated weather and atmosphere conditions to test the life time of the fabric.

 

Training courses

We can perform basic or detailed training courses with theoretical and practice classes following all NOFO proceedures and techniques about how to recover the Oil Spill in a complete operation.

Our references says that the detailed training course increases in at least 3 years the life time of the boom.

Oil Spill

An oil spill is the release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the environment, especially marine areas, due to human activity, and is a form of pollution. The term is usually applied to marine oil spills, where oil is released into the ocean or coastal waters, but spills may also occur on land. Oil spills may be due to releases of crude oil from tankers, offshore platforms, drilling rigs and wells, as well as spills of refined petroleum products (such as gasoline, diesel) and their by-products, heavier fuels used by large ships such as bunker fuel, or the spill of any oily refuse or waste oil.

Oil spills penetrate into the structure of the plumage of birds and the fur of mammals, reducing its insulating ability, and making them more vulnerable to temperature fluctuations and much less buoyant in the water. Cleanup and recovery from an oil spill is difficult and depends upon many factors, including the type of oil spilled, the temperature of the water (affecting evaporation and biodegradation), and the types of shorelines and beaches involved.[1] Spills may take weeks, months or even years to clean up.

Oil spills can have disastrous consequences for society; economically, environmentally, and socially. As a result, oil spill accidents have initiated intense media attention and political uproar, bringing many together in a political struggle concerning government response to oil spills and what actions can best prevent them from happening.

Eg: Numbers of killed dead animals during Deepwater Horizon accident in Mexican Gulf in April-July 2010 (Source: A Center for Biological Diversity Report — April 2011)

In total, we found that the oil spill has likely harmed or killed approximately 82,000 birds of 102 species, approximately 6,165 sea turtles, and up to 25,900 marine mammals, including bottlenose dolphins, spinner dolphins, melon-headed whales and sperm whales. The spill also harmed an unknown number of fish including bluefin tuna and substantial habitat for our nations smallest seahorse and an unknown but likely catastrophic number of crabs, oysters, corals and other sea life. The spill also oiled more than a thousand miles of shoreline, including beaches and marshes, which took a substantial toll on the animals and plants found at the shoreline, including seagrass, beach mice, shorebirds and others.
