General surface support buoys are designed to withstand the severe & delicate operating conditions associated with offshore operations.
Made out of closed cell polyethylen foam, coated with resistant Nibraprène® ES 40D polyurethan skin ensure the buoy will not absorb water even if the skin is damaged, increasing the life expectancy of the product and reducing the maintenance costs.
The resilient material makes the buoys self fendering with a high impact absorption capacity.
Used extensively in single point mooring systems, the three main types of support buoys are :
- Cylindrical buoy (pr utility buoy)
- Chain through support buoy
- Pick-up buoy
Small support buoys are specially designed for buoyancy no greater than 1 ton.
For the ends of metallic axle, options described below are available upon request.
