The team in the UK and Singapore shipped several units of Conventional Buoy Mooring systems this week. The shipments were loaded in Indonesia to an awaiting barge and transferred to Singapore. Once arrived in Singapore they were transported under police escort to the terminal and secured on MAFI’s for the voyage by oceangoing vessel to Dubai. We ensured that the delicate cargo was handled according to the highest standards.
Once installed, the buoys are fixed to the seabed by means of mooring lines and marine anchors. The buoys provide the strong points to which the vessel’s on-board mooring lines can be attached when no quay sites are available. However, these special units are combined with a fluid transfer system that enables connection of (subsea) pipelines to the midship manifold of a conventional tanker.
