Tandem Mooring to FSOs and FPSOs

This is a common method of mooring to FSOs and FPSOs where the export tanker is secured to the FSO / FPSO by means of a chafe chain. The distance between the export tanker and the installation is between 65 - 80 meters depending on the hawser length.


Since approach is to a ‘live’ installation, it will have to be carried out with precision and ensure that the lives of personnel onboard are not compromised with poor and/ or inexperienced piloting. Loading Master duties are incorporated with pilotage duty.

Our Company is able to provide trained and experienced Pilots, Mooring Masters and Loading Masters for Tandem Mooring & Loading Operations Terminal inspection of the tanker can also be carried out by our Company representative when required by Client.
