MARBOOM "First  Response"
shows its superior performance at its first official presentation, the SFT "Staten's forurensnings-tilsyn" (Oil Response Research Dept., Norway) in 1998.  SFT is the leading research and testing authority in Scandinavia for oil response equipment.  MARBOOM was tested under variations in paramount factors such as oil emulsion, oil quality, wave size, current strength and temperature.
