    Description

    You want to increase the safety of your people and the lifetime of your equipment?

    Loading of fluids and dry bulk materials between supply vessels and fixed or floating production or drilling units is necessary to maintain continuous operations. The main function of the Hose Loading Station is to store the loading hoses and contribute to more controlled and safer operations.

    The Hose Loading Station is designed, produced, tested and certified according to authority rules and regulations.

    Operations

    A crane must be used for guidance of the hose end down to the supply vessel. When the loading operation is completed, the fluid will be drained back to the supply vessel storage tank. Finally, the hose is reeled back on the reel.

    The hose reels are easily controlled by the portable control lever or the fixed control lever located on the power pack. Only one hose reel can be operated at one time.

    No manual handling of the hoses is necessary unless connecting and disconnecting the crane hook.
