Incorporating many design concepts from their extensively proven SALM (Single Anchor Leg Mooring) systems, Sofec, Inc.
of Houston, Texas, has designed and built a new CALM (Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring) marine terminal for installation in 65- foot water depth off Trengganu, West Malaysia.
Dubbed "CALM-PLUS," the terminal can accommodate tankers to 85,000 dwt during 10-foot waves, and can withstand a maximum wave of 28 feet.
The underbuoy hose system, a Sofecdesigned "Modified Chinese Lantern" con- figuration, will readily accommodate the large vertical buoy displacements in the relatively shallow water location.
The terminal is connected to shore by four 18-inch submarine lines, handling crude oil, ballast water, naptha, fuel oil, kerosene, and/or diesel oil.
A major engineering effort went toward reducing maintenance and facilitating field repairs which may be periodically required.
All inspection and lubrication ports are easily accessible. Other features include: — The 72-inch main bearing handling mooring loads, fully enclosed in a machined steel housing; multiple Teflon® seals exclude seawater and other contaminants. This modular unit can be repaired or replaced on location. The three turntable roller assemblies are also fully sealed.
— The product swivel assembly is completely segregated from mooring loads, does not require lubrication, and may be fully maintained on location.
— In addition, the chain stoppers are attached above water and do not require divers for attachment or inspection. The chains can be vertically tensioned.
Free literature is available completely describing the Sofec CALM marine terminal.
