CALM buoys services

CALM buoys have grown to become one of the leading offshore loading terminals and are being deployed worldwide for a wide range of applications and vessels. They’re commonly used for offloading crude oil from floating production storage and offloading units in deep water.

Our services include:

  • CALM buoy supply
  • CALM buoy installation
  • CALM buoy operation
  • CALM buoy maintenance
  • CALM buoy refurbishment
  • CALM buoy repair
  • CALM buoy removal

CALM buoys are secured to the seabed by anchors or piles and are typically located in water between 20-100m where they’re connected to a storage facility or offshore production farm. At least one hawser secures the tanker to a turntable which is mounted by a slewing bearing to the top of the buoy. The liquid is then transferred via the CALM buoy to/from the tanker via floating and subsea hose systems.
