The Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM) system holds the tanker in a spread moored arrangement. It is used worldwide, but generally in relatively shallow water depths and mild to moderate environmental conditions. The seabed pipeline terminates close to the tanker mooring. A string of submarine hoses is laid out from the PLEM along the seabed and recovered to the tanker for fluid transfer operations.
Continental’s single and double carcass hoses are widely utilized on a variety of CBMs. Manufactured to the latest OCIMF certification, these hoses are the principal means for tanker loading and discharge operations in shallow water depths.
In many cases, the standard Continental hose range will already suit the design requirements of a particular CBM installation; in others, customized versions of standard range hoses or somewhat more complex hose construction solutions are needed.
Single carcass submarine hoses for the transport of petroleum fluids at CBM/MBM moorings.
Double carcass anti-pollution submarine hoses for the transport of petroleum fluids at conventional buoy moorings.
Most hose types can be supplied with a REFLEX construction, but a popular option for CBM systems.
LPG suction and discharge hoses for ship-to-shore CBM transfer.
