Vikoma are Swan Heroes

Swan Hero

Vikoma has donated a boom to protect swans against slipping into a reservoir. The swans and their cygnets at Dunoon's Bishops Glen Reservoir in Scotland were belly flopping into the reservoir but can now swim safely thanks to Vikoma and a team of volunteers looking after them.

Managing Director, Karen Lucas said, "Vikoma will be 50 yeras old this year and this is the first time our boom has been used for stopping swans leaping in to a reservoir. Our products usually protect birds and the environment from oil spills and there have been some other novel uses in the past including, stopping jelly fish getting into water intakes, beaches and reports; preventing debris obstructing a kayak race course and stopping rubbish getting into canals but this is a first with swans".
