Bird Free Fire Gel - Case Study - Incheon Maritime Port Office

Incheon Port in Korea, is a high-tech World Class Port, handling ships up to 50,000 WLT,

...and is working hard to emerge as the central port for North East Asia.

As with many maritime locations however, it suffers with seagull and pigeon problems which can play havoc with high tech equipment used to operate the port.

This case study covers bird repellent activity at the Incheon Regional Maritime Affairs & Port Office, where high tech equipment controls the water levels and operation of the Lock Gates

The Problem:

Heavy soiling to walkways by seagull and pigeon droppings made life very unpleasant and a health risk for passengers and workers alike.

The birds, which were living in the water level control towers were also causing structural corrosion with their deposits.

...some more evidence of the problem                                




...this clearance of a small area of deposits offers an indication of just how bad the problem was





The Solution:

In June 2007, a trial application of Bird Free Fire Gel was undertaken in one of the Water Control Towers.

The trial was a great success and so in December 2008 some 800 tubes of Bird free Fire Gel were deployed to protect the other 10 operational Water Level Control Towers


...after installation of Bird Free, this area looks a little cleaner than it does in the first picture above!


Mr. Oh Kyeong Sun, a manger of the environment management team, explains;

Seagulls and pigeons live in the towers that control the water levels.

The high level of bird droppings was causing displeasure and risk to passengers and workers, and was also corroding the structure.

During the first year after installation of Bird Free Fire Gel on the trial site, we knew that it had worked perfectly, so we then use Bird Free to protect the other ten control towers.
