Seaward To Supply Buoys For Middle East Jackups —Literature Available

Seaward International, Inc., Falls Church, Va., supplied 16 Sea Float pendant buoys to a worldwide drilling company for use on four jackup rigs scheduled for service in the Middle East.

The buoys have a unique square cross section that minimizes the ADDRESShazard of their rolling around on the deck of the workboat during handling operations. The Sea Floats are being supplied with a 6-inch hawse pipe so that a wire rope can be passed through them.

Company literature describes the buoys as having 5,000 pounds net buoyancy. They can support 175 feet of 1.5-inch wire and are used as anchor marker buoys in water depths to 150 feet. The buoys have an overall height of 7 feet 9 inches and are 5 feet square at the water line.

The buoys are constructed of the same closed-cell plastic foams as Seaward's other Sea Floats, with a steel interior frame for strength.
