buoy equipped with oceanographic sensors
The buoy comprises a buoyancy element (8) positioned at an upper portion of the buoy in the ascending direction.
The buoy (1) may be tethered to a submarine vessel and used as a communications buoy.
The invention also relates to a buoy (3) for a wave power unit, which buoy has the corresponding features as above.
A spider buoy (44) in a docked position is received within the turret (32) with the upper part of the buoy at a position above the sea water level to permit dry servicing of the buoy (44).
The buoy (2) is secured to an anchoring means (3) which defines a filling conduit (4) for the buoy (2).
The shaft is coupled to the buoy such that when the buoy moves vertically in response to a passing wave, the shaft rotates.
The shaft may be coupled to the buoy such that when the buoy moves vertically in response to a passing wave, the shaft rotates.
A disconnectable mooring assembly for a vessel (1) comprises a mooring buoy (11) and a swivel positioned above the mooring buoy.
The swivel is located above the mooring buoy in such a manner that an interspace is defined between the mooring buoy and the swivel.
