Net Pen Construction

Net-Pen Systems

Severe conditions and unforgiving environments. Diverse wave and wind conditions and strong tidal currents. In other words, the standard settings most aquaculture organizations require for net pen systems including nets, net pens and marine cages.

Poseidon Ocean Systems is a leader in the design and supply of nets, net pens and marine cages in Canada and around the globe. We have the expertise, knowledge and technical ability to design and supply net pen systems that meet the specific performance requirements of your operations.

We offer both steel and HDPE net pen systems in any configuration, each tailored to the environment and conditions they will face. We have extensive experience with predators and designing systems to eliminate predator losses. Plus, our knowledge, experience and research and development investment allows us to engineer unique solutions.

Walkway General Arrangement

  1. Includes standard bull-rail to accommodate existing rigging plans.
  2. Equipment post socket every 10’ standard.
  3. Bird-net support frames with overhead lift capacity for net weights.
  4. FRP walkway grating is lightweight and removable.
  5. HDPE pipe flotation allows for continuous and attenuated response to wave action. It has up to 400% greater wall thickness than traditional billets and is fully sealed.
  6. All piping, hose, and conduit can be located below grating for a safe working area.
  7. Removable steel grating is an option. Grating can be upgraded to accommodate forklifts at any time.
  8. All feed and air piping is located under the deck.
  9. Pipe floatation is continuous across all hinged joints, significantly reducing deflection at the hinges, and reducing or eliminating the need for hinge stiffeners.
