Wave Hub Aids to Navigation

Please be advised that the Wave Hub South East Special Mark (site boundary marker) has been reported as having lost its superstructure. It should be assumed that there is no functional top mark or light on this buoy. It was reported that the buoy itself remains on station and afloat. Mariners are advised to navigate with caution in the vicinity of the Wave Hub offshore site between the North and South Cardinal buoys. The fault will be investigated and repaired as soon as possible.

Assigned positions, key characteristics and current status of Wave Hub operated Aids to Navigation can be found in the table below. 

It is respectfully requested that fishermen maintain a 250m clearance where possible from Wave Hub Aids to Navigation to avoid fouling of the catenary moorings.
