Oil spill boom system introduced

In the spring the Port of Gothenburg will introduce the new system for the oil harbour.

In the event of a spill, a torpedo-like vessel is sent out into the harbour, deploying an oil boom which then contains and collects the oil, as Port of Gothenburg states. The traditional method is to send out a boat which deploys the booms manually. In contrast, this new technique is fully automated. The "torpedo" is dispatched with the simple push of a button and it then follows a pre-programmed course with the aid of advanced GPS navigation. The boom is put in place automatically.

The Port of Gothenburg and Hisings Backa based SP Marine AB have developed a new method for dealing with oil spills.
