Manuplas® supply chain support buoys to oil and gas industry!

Working closely with customers in the oil and gas industry (including oil rigs and FPSO’s), our marine team were able to provide chain support buoys and help provide a solution which was not standard.

  • Swivel eyes top and bottom
  • Chain through arrangement
  • Pick-up buoys

Applications include single point mooring systems and pipe or chain system buoyancy.
