PALFINGER MARINE has developed a new hose securing system for platform support vessels (PSV’s) which provides automated and safe operation during loading and off-loading.
PALFINGER’s hose securing systems (HSS) provide safe and automated handling of hoses onboard offshore support vessels
during loading and off-loading bulk to or from a rig. Various numbers of hose securing arms (HSA) are mounted outside of the rail on the vessel nearby the bulk loading connection points (normally four on each side of the vessel). Each hose securing arm consists of one main frame with baseplate for either bolting or welding to deck, one rotatable arm for catching and locking of the hose and one supporting element for reduced wearing of hoses.
The hose securing system is designed to catch and lock hard and soft wall hoses during loading and unloading liquid and dry bulk materials. In operation the arm will be rotated to horizontal position which is the catching position.
