Oceangoing Boom Barge (CGA 300)

Designed to be a transportable platform capable of providing collection and containment capabilities at the source of an oil spill.

Oceangoing Boom Barge (CGA 300)

The CGA 300 is an Oceangoing Boom Barge that houses 25,000 feet of 43” air inflatable auto-boom palletized in 500’ sections. Each section can be set over the side via onboard crane and handed to a support vessel for inflation and deployment. When no longer needed, each section can be attached to one of two recovery reels where it is deflated, coiled back into a roll, and pressed onto a pallet or strap for placement back in secondary containment to be stored for reuse or decontamination. The barge also has a machinery space with a generator and HPU to provide power for the two onboard cranes, a removable conex box workshop and storage space, and an air-conditioned temporary (removable) workspace for personnel assigned during a response.

Below deck is a storage area for additional PPE, parts, or other items to provide logistical support as needed to support operations.
