Title (EN) FLOATING CONTAMINANT CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS
(FR) SYSTEME DE RETENTION DE POLLUANTS FLOTTANTS
Abstract:
(EN) Leaking oil and other contaminants (10) floating on water (12) are contained by providing sheet material (14) at the site (15) of the contaminant for fabrication of a containment boom structure. Such containment boom structure (13) is continually fabricated from that sheet material at the site and upon the occurence of the contaminant floating on water and is continually deployed into the water (12) against the spread of the contaminant on that water. By way of example, oceans and other bodies of water (12), as well as coastal environments (54), may thus be protected against the spread of leaking oil after accidents involving oil tankers (39) or offshore drilling operations, or against other floating contaminants (10).
(FR) Le pétrole déversé du fait de fuites ainsi que d'autres polluants (10) flottant sur l'eau (12) sont contenus par l'installation d'une matière en feuille (14) sur le site (15) où se trouvent les polluants afin de former une structure de barrière flottante de rétention. Ladite structure de barrière flottante de rétention (13) est fabriquée en continu à partir de ladite matière en feuille sur le site, et, lors de l'apparition du polluant à la surface de l'eau, elle est déployée de manière continue dans l'eau (12) afin de lutter contre l'extension de ce polluant sur l'eau. A titre d'exemple, les océans et d'autres eaux (12), ainsi que les environnements côtiers (54) peuvent ainsi être protégés contre l'extension de pétrole provenant de fuites après des accidents occasionnés par des navires pétroliers ou des opérations de forage au large, ou contre d'autres polluants flottants (10).
