Tandem mooring and offloading systems

We design and supply complete integrated tandem mooring and offloading systems for floating production units such as FPSO, FSO and FLNG. 

Offloading systems
Royal IHC can fabricate the reel to any diameter, length and type of hose (OCIMF or API 17K). We have experience of various hose reel diameters, for both single and double layer storage.

Our tailor-made spooling device reduces wear and tear on the offloading hose, and helps the hose to spool smoothly. If required, our systems can be delivered with an ESD valve, offloading hose string, MBCs, QC/DCs and OHTP (North Sea valve).
