Offshore Loading Stations
Offshore Loading Stations are designed to provide reliable, safe and efficient fluid transfer in various offshore applications. These systems can improve efficiency and safety on jack-ups, semis, drill ships, TLPs and FPSOs — any Offshore vessel where fluid and dry products are loaded from a service/supply vessel.
WORLDS MOST COMPACT OFFSHORE LOADING STATIONS
Offshore Loading Stations are designed to provide reliable, safe and efficient fluid transfer in various offshore applications. These systems can improve efficiency and safety on jack-ups, semis, drill ships, Spars, TLPs and FPSOs — any Offshore vessel where fluid and dry products are loaded from a service/supply vessel. Loading stations are safer, more environmentally safe and extend hose life when compared to present deployment methods. Applications typically include transfer of bulk drilling materials such as bentonite, barite, dry cement and liquids like potable water, drill water, diesel oil, liquid mud, brine, sludge, dirty drain, etc.
The innovative Reel Power ME Loading Station is the World’s Most Compact Loading Station on the market.
- Innovative patent pending design makes the Reel Power ME Loading System the most compact and lightweight in the world.
- “Drop – In – Reels” are easily removable, maintainable and interchange-able
- Self-Lubricating, high strength, low corrosion composite gear offers easily replaceable sections
- Low torque drive components are easily accessible and offer long life
- System bulkhead allows easy make-up to existing loading systems piping
- Improved hose life with near complete UV protection
- Most complete hose solution with break-away coupling, swivels and low profile floatation. Break-away fitting provided when appropriate.
- Innovative drive system passively locks each reel position when not in use
- Rotating components are fully guarded
- Walkway on water side allow clear viewing of operation and easy access to hose end
- Corrosion resistant drip pans are under all risk areas. Retractable drip pan below the hose ends.
- Single point lifting offers easy installation on new or existing vessels
