Arctia has manufactured hundreds of large buoys of varying diameters for Finland’s coastal and inland waterways. Our polyethylene buoys have proven functional and durable even in harsh winter conditions, and they have been used to replace expensive steel buoys as navigational aids.
The buoys can be fitted with a remote monitoring feature that enables real-time location and weather condition data as well as lantern status data. Remote monitoring enables programming navigational aid maintenance operations and inspections in advance to improve the efficiency of servicing and save costs.
In addition, the buoys can be fitted with a remote control feature to enable the operator to remotely adjust lantern luminosity based on conditions affecting detectability. Remote control improves navigation in the waterway, contributing to the safety of maritime transport.
