Single Point
Mooring (SPM)

For Single Point Mooring systems Offspring International’s range means we can support operators with individual components or a comprehensive design package, tailored to suit individual location requirements and water temperatures.

Offspring International supplies a range of single point mooring offtake systems including the typical dual hawser configuration, single-leg type mooring hawser and grommet type mooring hawser.

OCIMF Compliance Across All Systems

Offspring’s full range of Single Point Mooring products is manufactured and supplied in strict accordance with the latest guidelines from the Oil Companies International Marine Forum (OCIMF) , including OCIMF 2000 ‘Guidelines for the Purchasing & Testing of SPM Hawsers’ and OCIMF 2018 ‘Guidelines for Offshore Tanker Operations’.

We can also advise terminals on how to ensure their system follows the recommendations of OCIMF 2015 ‘Single Point Mooring Maintenance and Operations Guide’, helping to ensure the condition of the mooring system and maximise its service life.

Our team regularly contributes its knowledge and experience to the OCIMF and other forums for the continuing development of Single Point Mooring best practice.

After Sales Service

Offspring International offers a comprehensive after sales service designed to assist operators to understand the SPM mooring systems behaviour and performance in specific field operations including residual strength testing of used / retired mooring hawsers.

In addition, Offspring International offers a complete SPM after-sales service including on-site visits including rope usage optimisation and logistics supply operations.

Residual Hawser Strength Testing
Offspring International can assist operators to understand hawser behaviour and performance in specific field operations by residual strength testing of used / retired mooring hawsers. Through this it is possible to optimise the hawsers performance for maximum operational life.

To do this we work with Lankhorst’s fully equipped laboratories in Portugal, which have the capability to analyse mooring hawsers for condition, signs of internal abrasion damage or ingress of foreign particles and perform residual break tests.

This information helps operators to understand the hawsers in use at their terminal and make better informed judgements on current and future retirement programmes.
