Containment Booms

Marine Pollution Management Solutions -

Containment booms help tackle pollution caused by

plastic, rubbish, silt, sediment, pollutants and other debris,

providing easy removal from the water.

A containment boom is a floating barrier used to contain floating debris, such as plastic, rubbish, silt and sediment, or pollutants that enter our waterways through construction, development and everyday living.

Ecobarrier manufactures, supplies and installs different types of containment booms. As every construction site and marine environment is different, the booms can be custom manufactured to suit the project requirements.

Being a UAE-based contractor, Ecocoast Contracting LLC, we have used all Ecobarrier products on our own projects and therefore provide after-sales support that cannot easily be matched. Our containment booms have been successfully implemented in several locations throughout the Middle East and beyond.

ApplicationsFoam Booms are suitable for areas with different current intensities that require containment of high volumes of surface foam. Debris Booms are designed for long-term use in most marine environments.

Foam Booms


Foam booms are used to block or capture high volumes of surface foam or debris. They are available in four different classes built to withstand low, medium or heavy currents.

The booms are made of UV stabilized PVC membrane fabric in yellow color, but can be produced in different color variations upon request.

To improve identification of the foam boom, navigation buoys and lights can be provided to ensure clear demarcation of the area and an improved night-time lit environment. Further customization is available, as we always aim to meet the needs and requirements of client specific marine environments.

Ecobarrier Jellyfish Nets: Okean Float Nets

Okean Float Nets are one of the most durable floating nets that have a broad range of applications. They are used to block jellyfish or capture almost all types of floating debris, such as litter, algae and seaweed, as well as prevent extended pollution at the same time.

Their aerodynamic design gives them exceptional floating stability and maximum endurance in all types of weather conditions. The floats are UV-stabilized and made of light materials, suitable for long-term use in the marine environment.

An antifouling treatment is recommended to prevent the build-up of marine growth on the submerged elements of the barrier.
