Shellfish Farming

The Offshore Mussel Float is a highly durable polyethylene float that has been developed for mussel farming operations in high energy offshore environments. Its modular construction and simple operation design features make it the ideal choice of float for the offshore mussel farmer when used in vertical axis systems. Advanced butt fusion process and control techniques are used in the manufacturing process.

Specialist manufacturing process

The PE floats are made from robust and durable High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE), which is ideal for the demanding conditions found in offshore aquaculture. Featuring two unique injection moulded end-caps, the floats are manufactured using specialist butt fusion process and control techniques.

Convenient to transport

Owing to the compact nature of the mussel float, transportation of multiple floats on one lorry is very convenient and cost-effective with up to 180 x 2 metre floats being able to fit onto a single 40ft artic lorry.

Strength in connection

Pressure injection moulded-end cap ensures strong rope connection points and consistent 12mm wall thickness. Our specially machined PE pin design for fastener arrangement safely secures floats to mussel lines.
