The hose protection system consists on a hydraulically operated Quick Connect Disconnect Coupler (QCDC), together with upper and lower isolation valves to fit at the interface between the hard deck piping and a floating export hose from an FPSO or FSO, ensuring minimal spillage of product after the emergency.
By utilising the MIB QCDC the system also enables a quick means of reconnecting the hose-string once the situation is rectified so as to keep downtime and demurage costs to a minimum. This is particularly relevant to the larger hose diameters where traditional handling and bolting practices can be extremely difficult and time consuming.
The system can be also supplied as a complete engineered package from MIB inclusive of hydraulic power and controls, links into the vessel hawser mooring system, remote activation and so on.
The system is suitable for ambient and low temperature fluid transfer. The system is designed accordingly to customer requirements making each project unique in its genre.
