JFC Marine Aids to Navigation
JFC Marine with over 30 years’ experience manufacturing innovative plastic products, manufacture and supply a complete range of precision engineered navigation buoys complete with Atons systems. We offer an extensive range of aids to navigation equipment including lanterns, AIS systems, battery and solar powered solutions. JFC navigation buoys are used to mark out shipping channels, hazardous waters, aquaculture sites and a variety of other marine installations.
Designed for use for both inshore and offshore applications these modular designed buoys aim to set a new standard in floating aids to navigation. A member of IALA, JFC buoys and beacons are available in a wide range of IALA recommended colours and configurations.
The latest larger sized additions to the range include the Seagull and Gannet Navigation Buoy varieties. These range in size from Ø1.5m to Ø3m sized buoys. JFC Marine have considered all aspects of the buoys life at sea which are designed and manufactured for the most demanding conditions using superior quality materials and considering ease of assembly both onshore or on deck of support vessels. They also boast excellent stability characteristics, power system versatility, and environmental credentials. By addressing key design criteria, JFC buoys can reduce costs and maximise service intervals. Safe access for maintenance personnel and ease of operation has been prioritised, as have all deployment, mooring, and retrieval requirements.
“With our new buoy design and with the advances in technology we are now capable of adding new technologies and sensors to our buoys to provide real-time information to pilots at sea, information such as wave height, wind speed and water currents” Colin Concannon Head of Sales JFC Marine.
