Confirmation is issued that the construction of three new double hull CALM Buoys will be managed by EPC Solutions on behalf of The Monobuoy Company and fabricated at Fabtech International.
The three replacement Buoys for PDO (Oman) incorporate many innovative design features allowing them to be completely interchangeable on any of the 6 or 8 leg berths that PDO operates for the export of crude or the import of refined products.
In order to reach the 25 year design life without dry-docking each hull will be coated with thermal spray aluminum (TSA).
Design will be undertaken at The Monobuoy Company's Monaco office and certification of the design will be performed by DNV GL from their offices in London. The buoys will be built under DNV GL class supervision. This is a fast-track project with delivery scheduled for end 2015.
