Boompools

Monday, October 08, 2001
Containing spills is a job for the port authorities. Ninety percent of the annual 450 spills involve less than 50 litres. To deal with these, the RMPM patrol vessels have absorbent oil booms. For larger spills, more than 250 litres, a number of companies in the port area have synthetic booms to avert the oil. With the founding of a so-called Boompool, a partnership between the government and business community the booms can be used more efficiently. The booms can be found at strategic points in the port and are stored in one-TEU containers. During incidents, the fire brigade collects the oil booms and puts them into service.
