This 7,800 L (7,300 kg net buoyancy) buoy was originally designed for an aquaculture farm in the unforgiving waters of Alaska. This new design is comprised of 3 of Tidal’s CB2500 hulls integrated with a central frame. Running through the center of each CB2500 hull are 2.5″ Schedule 40 galvanized pipes, which are directly connected to the central frame. The frame features a 6″ SCH40 center pipe and engineered flanges & gussets. The result is minimal stress on the buoy hulls themselves. Each hull features EPS foam fused cores to ensure sustained buoyancy in the event of a breached hull. In addition, the hulls can be replaced as needed.
This product was designed with shipping efficiency in mind. 5 fully assembled units can be loaded on a 53′ flat deck truck.
