SOFEC Awarded NavSea
Contract For Offshore
SOFEC, Inc. of Houston has re- ceived a contract from the Naval
Sea Systems Command for the con- struction, testing, and sea trials of a rapid deployment single anchor leg mooring terminal known by the trade name RA-DE SALM™. The unit will moor and unload tankers of up to 70,000 dwt in the open sea, and will allow the prompt and effi- cient delivery of fuel products for shore-based military equipment.
The entire system is designed to be deployed and operational within 48 hours of its arrival at site. Installa- tion can be accomplished with a minimum of manpower and equip- ment.
The RA-DE SALM is similar to other commercial systems designed and constructed by SOFEC. It may be delivered to site by towing or it may be carried on the deck of a ship in a special launching frame. The unit utilizes preplaced solid ballast in the mooring base, and will func- tion in a wide range of seafloor con- ditions ranging from soft mud to firm sand or coral.
The Navy's unit is scheduled for delivery in mid-1985.
