  WA State Response Team Ro-Boom deployment (video)

In Western Australia there are two national oil spill response equipment stockpiles located in Fremantle and Dampier. These stockpiles are administered and maintained by Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA). Stockpiles comprise various oil spill response equipment including Roulands Ro-Bay 1500 inflatable curtain boom also known as Ro-Boom.

Ro-Boom is a heavy duty containment boom designed to handle offshore conditions. It can be deployed from a vessel or fixed shoreline structure such as a wharf.

The deployment of this equipment safely, efficiently and effectively requires careful planning.

This video has been produced by the Department of Transport with assistance from Svitzer, Fremantle Ports, AMSA and the members of WA State Oil Spill Response Team to assist in planning and preparation for Ro-Boom deployment.
