Ten units supplied in 1997

In 1997 Mampaey Offshore Industries supplied six triple Quick Release Mooring Units and four double Quick Release Mooring Units on the jetty, including an Electrical Remote Control System and an Mooring Load Monitoring System by a third party. The MLMS has been revamped by Mampaey in 2007. During commissioning of the new units, the old units were checked: after 22 years of service the Quick Release Mooring Units are still fully operational and can still be used for several more years.

Accommodation of larger LNG vessels

To safely accommodate larger LNG vessels than the ones which moored at the DESFA Revithoussa Terminal in the past, two additional mooring points were to be constructed; one at either side of the existing jetty. Our client, DESFA Hellenic gas Transmission, preferred these mooring points to be outfitted by Mampaey Quick Release Mooring Units, because we supplied the already existing mooring units in 1997 to DESFA’s satisfaction.

The two additional Quick Release Mooring Units are triple units with an SWL of 100 tons. As per customers request, Mampaey delivered the units to be able to connect to the already existing Electrical Remote Control System; it was possible to upgrade the existing Remote Control Panel and Mooring Load System with a minimal software upgrade instead of replacing these systems, keeping the costs as low as possible.
