Pontoons

combined with large diameter making it ideal for exposed offshore locations. The extra -large three-ring Triton 450 cage has already proved extremely successful for the offshore farming of tuna and salmon. The new Triton 400 version has been developed to provide an alternative specification that can be used in either three or two ring formats. The excellent buoyancy and strength of the Triton range provides a safe and stable working platform aided by heavy gauge handrails. All Triton cages feature anti-slip safety decking, with the handrails and all other fittings constructed from tough and corrosion resistant PE.

Square pens

Ideal for freshwater and estuarine locations, these pens are excellent for small-scale production and the rearing of juveniles. Widely used around the world, they are manufactured to individual customer specifications.

Hatcheries

Fusion Marine’s expertise with plastic piping and associated equip-

Fusion Marine pontoons provide convenient and cost effective access for a variety of waterside locations, including remote coastal areas. Constructed from tough polyethylene and recycled plastic, the flexible nature of these custom-sized pontoons enables them to be sited on shelving beaches and other similar areas. As the tide or water level fluctuates, the pontoon follows the contours of the foreshore, providing the perfect answer for individuals, businesses and other organisations looking to gain easy access to the sea or other waterbody. These low maintenance pontoons are ideal for the landing and mooring of small and medium sized vessels. There is the option to increase the available berthing space by utilising a hammerhead arrangement at the end. All pontoons are specifically designed in close consultation with the customer to ensure they meet their specific site and size requirements. For specific aquaculture applications, pontoons are manufactured as landing and service platforms for fish farms, for example as a central pontoon with fish pens arranged on either side. Fish transfer pontoons are also designed and manufactured, enabling wellboats to pump fish ashore, or take fish onboard. www.fusionmarine.com
