Debris Management

Retain or divert floating debris.

Steel Booms Are Stronger.

Plastic booms will not retain debris in situations where there are large amounts of coarse debris in tandem with high currents.

Resist Debris AND Ice

In rivers where there is ice present, permanent steel booms will resist the ice while still retaining the debris.

Little To No Maintenance

Steel booms typically require very little to no maintenance for 25 years, depending on the environment it’s in.

Ice Control

Designed Right For The Conditions.

Every Geniglace Boom is designed and engineered for its specific purpose and surrounding environmental conditions.

Historic data is used to predict worst case scenarios of ice and debris loading, current, and wind. Every component of the boom is individually engineered to resist these forces.

Bark Lake All Season Safety Boom

In summer of 2006, an All-Season Safety Boom was designed, and constructed upstream of Ontario Power Generation's Bark Lake control dam located on the Madawaska River near Barry's Bay, Ontario.

Tailrace Safety Boom at Chats Falls GS

Past attempts have been made at installing a safety boom across the tailrace channel at Chats Falls GS without much success.

Debris Boom at Chute Bell GS

In 2004, a Debris Boom was installed at Hydro Quebec's Chute Bell GS, a small hydro generating station near Montebello, Québec.

Debris & Safety Boom Bryson QC

This project consisted of the design, fabrication and installation of a boom to control and divert debris to a desired location.

Debris Booms In Arrow Lake

The project consists of the design and supply of all components for a debris boom. The boom is to be installed upstream the canal of Arrow Lake Power Plant.
