CALM

The Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) or Single Point Mooring (SPM) system is a buoy that performs the dual function of keeping a tanker moored and transferring fluids, from tanker to shore -and vice-versa- via a subsea pipeline, while allowing the ship to weathervane. Providing a simple, economical solution to the challenge of loading and offloading, they are used for a variety of applications, water depths and vessel sizes ranging from small product carriers to Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCC).

CALM systems are securely anchored offshore, permitting cargo operations to continue in almost all weather and sea conditions. Floating hoses, which rotate around the SPM terminal with the tanker, connect the ship’s cargo manifolds to the SPM. Other hoses connect the underside of the SPM to the submarine pipelines at the seabed via a Pipeline End Manifold (PLEM).

Fast track project halving delivery time

Fast4Ward Buoy

Our experience and our know-how have made it possible to develop Fast4Ward buoys.

The fast4Ward program is a fast-track project gathering customer requirements, design standardization, exécution phase, supply chain integration ans enables digital solutions. These 5 key principles improve the reduction of cycle time, project de-risking and allow lower break-evens.

 

EPCI Expertise

Our designs and technology continuously evolve to meet the complex demands of the offshore terminals industry, allowing installation of our CALM buoys in increasingly deeper waters, facing harsher conditions and berthing larger tankers. Imodco’s terminal systems are bi-directional and capable of handling multiple fluid cargoes.
