Quay Reel – Efficient Tanker Loading & Unloading

The Quay Reel terminal loading and unloading system is now available from Offspring International under a global primary agent agreement. Developed by fluid transfer systems specialist, Techflow Marine, the Quay Reel flexible hose system offers simultaneous product transfer, reducing loading times by up to 60%.

Conventional quay-based loading systems utilise loading arms making the system prone to high loading times as the arms cannot cross each other. This arrangement limits the number of products that can be loaded at any one time and as a result tankers must move to load other products. Quay Reel’s flexible loading system allows simultaneous loading and offloading, reducing operation times and enhancing terminal capacity.

Mark Brooks, sales and marketing director, Offspring International said, “Techflow Marine’s Quay Reel is based on technology proven in over 100 separate projects in the oil and gas industry. Utilising Quay Reel reduces the service life costs of offloading infrastructure and enhances capacity, allowing for sustainable increases in terminal demand”.

Edison Award 2016 Finalist

The Quay Reel offloading system’s innovative design has been recognised as a finalist for its contribution to the transportation and logistics of materials handling by the Edison Awards; inspired by the renowned inventor Thomas Edison, the awards aim to recognise, honour and foster innovation and innovators to create a positive impact in the world.
