Conventional steel buoys are relics from 19th century, from the times before internet and e-Navigation. Deployment and maintenance comes expensive.
Polyethylene navigation buoys saves costs, because lighter vessels and moorings and less maintenance is required.
Polyethylene navigation buoys have been used in Finland since 1976. Even today 30.000 units of SeaHow navigational aids and buoys of different type are in use, including many Ice Buoys for winter time.
Regarding rotationally molded modular buoys, we co-operate with Go Deep International
The lighter weight of the buoy and the moorings enables the use of smaller tender vessels and boats and cranes.
Slim shape of a spar buoy together with bigger draft is exposed to smaller drag force caused by the waves. Spar shaped body is superior in ice.
A spar type of buoy is not a wave rider like a conventional buoy, thus the movements are calmer resulting less wear and tear of the mooring.
Longer Life span:
Polyethylene does not corrode and the colors do not fade.
