Offspring International celebrated another record year for sales of single point mooring (SPM) hawsers in 2021. Offspring’s SPM hawsers can be found in terminals around the globe, helping tankers to moor safely during offloading operations from the Gulf of Mexico to India and throughout Asia.
Founded in 1991, Offspring International is celebrating 30 years as a leading mooring and offloading systems supplier. In this time, Offspring has contributed to many ground breaking projects and industry developments in deepwater mooring ropes, Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems as well as pioneering the introduction of Chinese manufactured chain into the offshore market.
Offspring International has renewed its exclusive worldwide agent agreement with leading mooring systems producer, Lankhorst Offshore, to offer Single Point Mooring (SPM) ropes. Offspring offers mooring hawsers and floating pick-up and messenger ropes for connection to the ship’s end of the chafe chain.
Offspring International’s China Operations team has moved into a new office in Zhenjiang, Jiangsu Province. The move will allow Offspring International to work more closely with manufacturing partners Asian Star Anchor Chain and Zheng Mao, with whom Offspring International has supplied more than 80,000 tonnes of chain over twenty years for some of the world’s largest offshore mooring projects.
Offspring International will be exhibiting at SLOM 2021 in Cartagena, Colombia, 10–12 October. Since the last SLOM exhibition and conference in 2019, Offspring’s range has grown to include valves for pipeline, buoy and tanker.
Through the agreement with Marine Division, Offspring will offer a variety of offshore valves and actuators for offloading systems including Single Point Mooring (SPM), Conventional Buoy Mooring (CBM), Pipeline End Termination (PLET) and PipeLine End Manifold (PLEM).
