Design and supply of a Marine Terminals on a fast track basis to the turnkey mooring development for a sophisticated Floating Storage and Offloading (FPSO) vessel, SOFEC has the technology, experience, and resources to get the job done on time and on budget.
SOFEC, Inc. is a leader in the development and supply of Single-Point Mooring (SPM) systems and is continually engaged in research involving new and improved tanker mooring systems and associated components. SPMs encompass a wide array of systems which moor vessels in the open sea. Turret moorings permit vessels to “weathervane” 360 degrees, allowing continued operations in extreme sea conditions.
Using model test data in conjunction with computer analyses to optimize system designs, SOFEC leads the industry in producing the highest quality systems at the lowest possible cost. Research and development efforts include development of new SPMs, both permanent and disconnectable, for floating storage and processing in both shallow and deep water, for cyclone prone areas and for service in ice congested Arctic waters. SOFEC continually verifies computer models against model test data to ensure the ability to provide our clients with the most accurate load and motion analysis. In addition, SOFEC is developing high pressure swivel systems to meet the demands of deep water production.
