CALM Buoys and Loading Terminals
We design, supply and install full Single Point Moorings systems.
These systems are comprised of a CALM buoy, anchors or piles, chainlegs, flexible subsea & floating hose strings, PLEM and mooring hawser for the reliable transfer of crude oil, LPG, kerosene, jet fuel, heavy fuel oil and other products.
We can also supply and install a bare buoy to replace an old or damaged buoy on an existing site.
Our CALM Buoy Design
Our buoy has taken the proven concept of the turntable buoy and made improvements to provide the client with a buoy incorporating
lessons learnt around the world.
Having a 12m diameter hull it can accomodate 4, 6 or 8 chainlegs all of them in a perfectly symmetrical
pattern making it ideal as a replacement buoy in terminals using 6 and 8 legs buoys.
An innovative and compact 40T chain pulling winch
is fitted, making the buoys easy and quick to install.
Single or multi-path swivel stacks can be fitted with utility swivels to power
and control subsea valves. See our Swivel Page
for more details.
Our buoy is designed to ABS rules, but can be built and supplied to
satisfy other classification societies such as DNV, Lloyds, BV, etc.
Alternatively we can offer a design of a Turret Type
