Anchoring Solutions for Oyster Farming
Water column oyster farming generally consists of a long line anchored, in some fashion, on each end. Floating mesh bags or cages (containing approx. 6 bags) are attached to the line and contain oysters where they are protected from predators or other environmental conditions. As the oysters grow out they are split into bags with larger openings where they can grow to market size. They are then harvested and the process is repeated year round.
Floating Cage System using S6 Anchors
Floating Bag System using B4 Anchors
Percussion Driven Earth Anchors (PDEA®) are ideal for most on-grid and off-grid arrays. Anchors can be rapidly installed, by hand, using simple tools and unskilled labour, removing the need for specialised equipment. In addition, where traditional foundation solutions have failed or are failing, due to incorrect installation or unsuitable ground conditions, a selection of standard retro-fit systems are available to help stabilize the array and provide additional support to uplift.
Temporary and Permanent Structures
We offer a versatile range of anchoring systems to secure all types of temporary and permanent structures. Where alternative methods are heavy, unreliable and expensive to transport, our lightweight solutions can be proof tested upon installation using locally available equipment. Where time and resources are limited, we design our anchoring systems to match the exact load requirements and design life of the temporary structure and with over 40 years of experience, can advise the safest and most efficient installation technique for your project.
