AtoN Structures

At M-NAV Solutions, we understand the importance of the structure in the long-term performance and availability of any AtoN, that no one solution fits all requirements and choosing the right AtoN structure is as important as the choice of AtoN equipment itself.

AtoN are not only required in deep water and are used in numerous other locations and for numerous other purposes, both on land and in shallow water. These include shallow coastal waters, on reefs, headlands, points, offshore islands, and numerous other locations where the installation and operation of floating AtoN is not feasible.

We offer several high-quality, off-the-shelf AtoN structures, designed and manufactured from high quality materials for durability, long service life and performance. We can also assist in the design process for those locations where off-the-shelf solutions are not suitable and customisation is required.

Our structures can be fitted with any configuration of lanterns, beacons, power supplies and daymarks and several remote monitoring and control technologies can be integrated.

Multiple factors must be considered when selecting the most appropriate structure including location, site conditions, durability, construction costs, ongoing maintenance costs, navigational and conspicuity needs, height requirements and impact on the local environment.

At M-NAV Solutions, we can assist with the selection and design process for your AtoN structure, to ensure the structure is suitable and designed to maximise life span and minimise through-life costs. We offer the full range of these services, from site assessments and investigation, conceptual and detailed designs through to budgeting and on-site installation and supervisory services.
