Trelleborg’s Modular Navigation Buoys

Trelleborg’s marine systems operation will showcase its innovative range of IALA compliant modular navigation buoys at Seawork 2016 International from the 14 to 16 June at Mayflower Park, Southampton, England.

Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg’s marine systems operation, says: “Building on the strength of a long standing foam elastomer and marine aluminium superstructure system, we boast a comprehensive range of polyethylene constructed navigation buoys, completing our portfolio of navigation and marker buoys to suit all environments.

“With that in mind, Seawork provides the ideal platform to showcase our modular system, which provides an easily transported option to cut down turnaround time and enable fast installation, as they can be shipped in sections and assembled on site.”

Manufactured from impact resistant, colour-fast, UV stable materials and comprising of sectional hull pieces filled with marine grade, water-resistant foam, Trelleborg’s range of IALA compliant modular navigation buoys are built around a hot dipped galvanised steel core. Available as standard in diameters ranging from 1.25 - 3.6 m, Trelleborg will also manufacture precisely to specification where required.

Trelleborg will also showcase its range of SeaGuard fenders which can be deployed floated or suspended, against a quay wall or for ship-to-ship operations. SeaGuard fenders suit all sites with small or large tidal changes. They also work just as well on new or old structures.

In addition, Trelleborg's SeaGuard fenders combine a durable, non-marking finish with low maintenance. SeaGuard fenders will never sink or deflate. Even at the end of their first service life they can be returned to the factory for refurbishment before going back to work.

Trelleborg’s highly durable floating foam and pneumatic fenders are available for short term or long-term rental. Readily available, they can be delivered and installed within days to any location across Europe and Asia Pacific.
