Floating Facilities SBM/CBM/CALM

Floating Facilities: Design, consultancy and supply of floating facilities

 

Single Point/Bouy Mooring systems (SPM/SBM)

It consists of a buoy that is permanently moored to the seabed by means of multiple mooring lines. The buoy contains a bearing system that allows a part of it to rotate around the moored geostatic part.
Meanwhile, the vessel is able to freely weathervane around the geostatic part of the buoy.

 

Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) systems

A floating buoy that performs the dual function of keeping a tanker moored on a single point and transferring fluids (generally crude oil or refined products) while allowing the ship to weathervane. It consists of a circular floating buoy anchored by means of multiple chain legs fixed to the seabed by either conventional anchor legs or piles. The buoy itself is free to move up and down, sideways and in pitching and rolling motions.

 

Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM)

The Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM) systems application is similar to SPM (Single Point Mooring) systems. As well they have been often known as Multiple Buoy Mooring (MBM) systems and have been utilized for the transfer of hydrocarbons between shore facilities such as PLEM (Pipe Line End Manifold) and floating systems such as FPSO, FSO or VLCC.
