Arivic has built up experience and know-how for over 20 years installing oil booms and skimmers in and around the Belgian ports.
Oil booms are able to contain spills on the water surface, and ensure that the contamination cannot further flow away. Once the contamination is contained, a skimmer can pump the spilled pollution to an external reservoir. To completely remove the last scraps of the spill we can provide absorbent booms and absorbent pads. We call this a 100% mechanical cleanup. (no dispersants needed).
Since 2012, we see a clear trend of companies investing in permanent oil booms which already contain 90% of the spills. So it’s a smart way of keeping the risks under control.
