Buoyancy + Water Weights

UG: Mono Buoyancy Units (Enclosed)

Availability: Rental, Sale

Our enclosed Mono Buoyancy Units (MBUs) deliver industry-leading efficiency in applications such as the laying of steel or HDPE pipelines – and in general support work at or near the surface. Because they’re attached to the load via a single point of connection, they require significantly less rigging time than multi-attachment alternatives Its structural internal connecting strop between each end of the MBU makes it possible to lift through or moor onto Unique Group’s MBUs – a capability which sets us apart from other products on the market.

connection, can be lifted via this point, can even be moored

onto.

Rental units inspected and tested between every single job.
