CFE #2 CALM - Mexico

SOFEC designed and fabricated a second CALM system for import of refined products for power generators in Mexico. The fluid transfer system is designed to allow circulation of hot diesel after every unloading. The first SOFEC system was installed in 1989 off Tuxpan, Mexico.

The CALM design features a turntable with tubulars as major structural members, a fully sealed and lubricated single bearing, dual product fluid swivel and trunnion mounted chain stoppers. This import buoy for Power Station No. 2 is identical to the one delivered in 1988 for Power Station No. 1.
