Offspring International signs International agent agreement with Manuli Hydraulics’ Oil & Marine Division
Under the agreement, Offspring will offer Manuli single and double carcass floating marine and submarine hoses, dock hoses and long length conduit hoses for offloading at SPM and CBM terminals and shuttle tankers.
Offspring International has extended its range of chain to offer larger offshore grade chain and full project management services for offshore mooring systems. Offshore mooring projects previously handled by OIL’s sister company, Sanmar Chain, will now be managed by Offspring International.
Offspring International achieved a record year for single point mooring ropes in 2017, confirming its position as the world’s leading supplier of SPM hawsers. OIL has also extended its exclusive worldwide agency agreement for SPM ropes with Lankhorst Euronete Portugal.
Offspring International will be attending SLOM 2017, the 13th edition of the event, in Colombia on 3-5 October. OIL has co-authored two papers for the conference with Paladon Systems’ Brian Ennever presenting ‘PLEM Valve Control Options’ and, Offshore Ops’ Paul Wartnaby presenting ‘Hawser Load Monitoring: The Intension of Tension’.
Available from Offspring International under a global primary agent agreement, the Quay Reel terminal loading and unloading system reduces loading times by up to 60%. Developed by fluid transfer systems specialist, Techflow Marine, the Quay Reel flexible hose system offers simultaneous product transfer, removing a significant barrier to efficient tanker loading and unloading.
Offspring International has added MIB Italiana’s Flip Flap to its range of marine breakaway couplings. The Flip Flap breakaway coupling provides passive hose string protection against excessive axial tension and internal surge pressures during hose transfer operations.
