MTR100 Article

DeepWater Buoyancy is the world’s largest supplier of subsea buoyancy to the ocean science community. The product line is more than 35 years old and is known throughout the world and in all offshore marine markets. DeepWater Buoyancy also has a vast and growing product line of buoyancy solutions for offshore oil and gas and technology companies. Though it offers products for shallow water applications, it specializes in deepwater, providing solutions to depths of 6,000 meters and beyond.

In 2013, DeepWater Buoyancy acquired the rights and designs for the legacy Flotec material technology and products, and has been producing, improving and growing the Flotec product line. Each year the product line improves and new items are added in response to market conditions, changing technology, and customer requirements. In addition to product innovation, new processes and equipment are added to the companies already wide capabilities.

At the heart of the DeepWater Buoyancy product line are the subsurface ADCP buoys, originally developed for Teledyne RD Instruments’ ADCPs. Consisting primarily of both spherical and elliptical buoys, the product line also includes the unique StableMoor® Mooring Buoys. These torpedo-shaped buoys are engineered to house ADCPs and other sensors for high current data collection applications. By design, the StableMoor® reduces drag and increases mooring stability in extreme fl ow regimes, thereby producing superior data sets.

However, DeepWater Buoyancy’s product line goes well beyond ADCP buoys. In the oceanographic market there are bottom mounts, instrument collars, and cable floats. For offshore oil and gas, there are installation blocks, modular buoys, deepwater marker floats and ROV buoyancy. In addition to DeepTec® syntactic foam products and custom-engineered components, there are also plastic, composite, polyurethane and fabricated metal products.
