The buoy hulls are constructed from rotationally moulded polyethylene, which is foam filled for added security, with a galvanised steel central structure, allowing the passage of instrumentation and cables through the water column while offering protection for the instrumentation during deployment and operation.

OSIL’s buoys provide a monitoring platform for a wide assortment of instrumentation and their designs make them suitable for many locations or applications including MetOcean, Dredge, Coastal and Environmental Monitoring. Diameters range from 0.4m to 3.0m, with a wide range of top frame designs.
