General Surface Buoys

Cylindrical buoys

Chain-through buoys

Pick- up buoys


General surface support buoys are extensively used in single point mooring {SPM) system . The three main types are cylindrical buoys, chain-through buoys and pick- up buoys.

Construction and Features

Evergreen Maritime general surface support buoys are manufactured with high quality closed-cell PE/EVA resilient foam, encapsulated with self-coloured tough polyurethane elastomer skin.

Closed cell resilient foam core, unsinkable design. General surface support buoys are produced with highest quality closed-cell PE/EVA foam. This resilient foam makes the buoys self tendering with high absorption capacity. Even the skin was punctured, it is also unsinkable without absorbing water. With our unique laminating process , each foam core is integrited. The foam core wil l not be ruptured after long time service.

Tough nylon filament reinforced polyurethane skin General surface support buoys’skin is constructed of polyurethane elastomer which is reinforced with nylon filament . The polyurethane skin is the unique elastomer specifically used for offshore applications. Its high resistance to abrasion, fatigue and ultra violet degradation are significantly more durable.

Steel work and end assembly
Through central steel tube with longitudinal gussets and external load distribution flanges at each end, epoxy coated or hot-dipped galvanized, are encased in a closed-cell urethane foam central body. Optional pad eye, clevis eye, swivel, chain locking plate, single locking pin end fitting are available .
