Title: (EN) Floating oil barriers with dispensing means
Abstract:
(EN) In order to confine oil spills from a tanker (22) quickly to prevent spreading out over the surface of water as an environmental hazard, enough barrier material (10) is stored on the tanker for discharge to form a floating enclosure for confining the oil, and mechanical aids (21) are provided for quick employment of the barrier material to form the floating enclosure from the deck of the tanker with the help of surface craft. Thus, for example, a stored barrier material such as one or more lengths of hollow plastic tubing (11, 12) may be reeled up until deployed by unreeling and casting overboard to form an enclosure. The tubing may be inflated by pumps (40, 41) located aboard the tanker to float properly in a position above and below the water surface.
