The OBOCS Solution
OnBoard Oil Containment Systems (OBOCS) offers the marine and oil and gas industries the capability to control an oil spill at the onset by having boom on the vessel in the shipping lanes ready for immediate deployment. However, OBOCS' capabilities go well beyond just containing oil in shipping lanes. OBOCS is designed for use in all facets of operations — including handling, storage, and transfer of product.
Time Is Critical
Time is a critical factor during a spill, and OBOCS can make the difference between a contained spill and a costly massive cleanup. The streamlined processes allow for immediate action instead of waiting hours for response teams to arrive.
One Client At A Time
Because one-size does not fit all, OBOCS manufactures its products one client at a time. This attention to the client needs and specifications defines the company. Guided by a seven-member Advisory Board with leaders from the maritime and oil and gas industries, the company focuses on safety, rapid containment, and good outcomes during the early phases of a spill.
