Harbo Rapid Response Boom

Harbo Rapid Response Boom

We transform oil spill response with the fastest oil containment boom on the market. The Harbo Boom oil spill response system tackles the main problem when spills occur. Oil spills become major disasters when there’s nothing on-site to stop oil from spreading. Don’t wait for oil spill responders to arrive; improve your oil spill response reaction time with our rapid response boom technology.

The Harbo Boom is the lightest, most compact, reusable and easiest boom to deploy and recover on the market. The Harbo Boom is ideal for your initial response effort!

How it works

Don't let bulky equipment slow you down.

The Harbo Boom is an oil spill first response system developed to immediately stop the spread of oil. It is a lightweight boom that can be deployed by 1-2 people in as little as 2 minutes as it requires no special equipment.

Each Harbo Boom cassette includes 50 feet of boom, end connectors so multiple sections can be joined together, handles, a plastic tarp used for deployment on rough shorelines and a plastic bag for disposal.

Instead of waiting for oil spill responders to arrive and relying on heavy equipment, our system can be available onsite or easily transported for rapid deployment and prevention.

Our design is the lightest oil containment option in the world. It's cassette based and can be opened without tools.
