Shipping operations cannot be carried on without signalling by way of buoys and signs, with or without extra LED lighting, sensors or antennas powered by solar energy. Ecocoast has a full range of buoys for use at sea or on inland waterways. Ecocoast’s self-designed Hyperion LED lighting has demonstrated its efficiency in the areas of visibility and durability especially.
The manufacturing of the buoys is tested and certified according to the IALA standards (International Association of Marine Aids to Navigation and Lighthouse Authorities). Needless to say, the buoys are available in all standard IALA colours.
Buoys need to be properly anchored. In this respect too, Ecocoast is a leading trendsetter with its EcoMoor system, a system designed in-house to anchor buoys, floating platforms and booms. The name ‘Eco’ says it all, these systems are much more environmentally friendly compared to the more traditional chains. EcoMoor anchorings do not damage the seabed, the plants or living organisms, for the simple reason that these mooring lines float. The lightweight mooring lines are 2 to 20 metres in length and can be linked together to the desired length.
