Floating System - SELFLOTE Single Carcass Hoses

Standard GMPHOM 2009

Single carcass floating hoses for the transport of petroleum fluids between FPSO and tanker.

SELFLOTE was the first integrally floated offshore oil hose in the world. Its single carcass design was as unique then as the new generation of SELFLOTE is now, the standard against which others are compared. Through continuing programmes of innovative technical evolution today’s SELFLOTE combines immense strength with flexibility and is capable of withstanding the demands of the world’s most exposed offshore installations.
