Boom to protect pumping station

Cowens have recently installed a 7 section boom to protect a critical pumping station from debris, oil and over inquisitive river users. With all 7 sections moving independantly, different river levels are not a problem. A unique flood cover protects the booms once they are no longer needed in very high flood conditions.

Longest Pod Boom Installation

April 2010. A second 250 metres of Cowens' rotary moulded pod boom was deployed on the Clyde to protect the naval shipyard. Cowens' divers worked in sub zero temperatures to install the boom as a permanent safety measure against the risk of oil spills escaping or debris getting in. The boom will cope with strong river currents in two directions (because of the tidal influence), as well as wind, waves and river traffic. Click here for product info.
