Oceanus™ floats

Balmoral Offshore Engineering’s design team created the Oceanus float to provide a range of standard, readily available, buoyancy units suitable for all ocean depths.

 

Oceanus floats comprise a high performance low density composite foam buoyancy core, encapsulated within a tough impact and abrasion resistant polyethylene shell and are supplied in a variety of colours with moulded-in client graphics where required.

To simplify the handling of Oceanus floats during deployment and recovery, each Oceanus features a pair of recessed lifting holes sized to accommodate ‘gloved hands’. The floats also incorporate a series of flat surfaces to assist on-board stability and facilitate close grouping as part of operation or storage.

The standard range of Oceanus floats covers four uplift capacities and six standard operating depths.
