JFL Jellyfish & Litter Boom


New Naval's Jellyfish and Litter Containment (JFL) Boom is a cost-effective, multi-purpose system that is designed to contain and collect jellyfish, marine garbage and floating or submerged pollutants in a variety of applications both on the surface and below water. The protection of valuable assets, both natural and man-made, has become paramount with the rising amount of plastics in the oceans. It has become increasingly necessary to protect shorelines, harbors, water intakes, fisheries and other facilities from debilitating factors including increasing populations of jellyfish, phenomena such as red plume, litter and pollution.

The permeable Polyamide nylon net attaches to the boom skirt extending the boom below the surface
The on-water boom is manufactured from high visibility PVC coated PES fabric, fabricated with High Frequency Thermal Welding
Cylindrical floats within the boom are made of closed-cell PET foam
Enforced axial tension is provided by two tension members; enclosed PET webbing and a Hot-Dipped Galvanized (HDG) Chain providing structure and form to the boom
The system can be deployed to contain oil spills or any other hazardous (solid, semi-solid and in some cases even liquid) pollutants
In the case of the skirt becoming damaged it can be replaced independently without having to replace the whole boom
Certified by the Greek National Laboratory as a non-toxic substance and is government approved by the Greek Ministry of Shipping
