EMSTEC hoses GMPHOM 2009 compliant

Offspring International is delighted to announce that the full range of EMSTEC single and double carcass offloading hoses is now compliant with ‘OCIMF Guide to Manufacturing and Purchasing Hoses for Offshore Moorings, 5th edition (2009)’.

The EMSTEC hoses are an integral part of a wider range of Single Point Mooring and offloading products now available from Offspring International. “These high quality hoses are a good fit with our other offloading systems which include the Oiltech Surge Protector and MIBreak breakaway hose coupling. We are able to offer terminal operators a one-stop shop for their SPM and Offloading systems,” says Mark Brooks, Sales and Marketing Director, Offspring International.

New Hoses Brochure

The new Offspring International Offloading hoses brochure contains full details of over 40 single and double carcass, marine and submarine hoses, together with details of ancillary equipment, OCIMF compliant Leak Detection System, and advice on storage and handling. In addition to the Oiltech Surge Protector the brochure also introduces the Oiltech Winker Light.

Winker Light

Floating hoses are always at risk of being hit by a passing vessel. The Oiltech state-of-the-art LED Winker Light is designed to reduce this risk. Mounted at intervals along the hose, the Winker light stands 450mm above the hose, its plastic composite body topped with a LED flashing warning light alerting vessels of the floating hose.

Fully submersible, the hose light is solar powered, storing energy during daylight hours and producing a bright 1-3nm output. It is easy to install, as there are no heavy steel parts other than the mounting bracket that is bolted to the flange during hose assembly. The composite body, with protective LED stainless steel cage and fasteners, is also maintenance free.
