What is a Fuel Transfer Boom and who is for?


Enviro-USA’s Fuel Transfer Oil Booms are perfect for containing any fuel spill that may occur while fueling large vessels, cruise ships, and/or boats. This product is commonly used by US Coast Guard for everyday fueling operations. They are normally used in pairs, one on either side of the fueling hose.  They can be used between 2 vessels as shown above or between vessel and seawall.  They are inexpensive, light weight, practical and a one person operation for all fueling operations. Mostly used by US Coast Guard & contractors responsible for fueling operations on cruise ships, boats and vessels.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Enviro-USA’s Fuel Transfer Oil Booms offer the highest freeboard in the industry. This is important if you are dealing with a lot of water activity due to boat traffic, windy conditions or choppy water. Freeboard is the part of the boom that is above the waterline and is responsible for containing any spill.
