Since 1989 and the development of STAPEM Offshore to Marine services, we have provided our clients with staff in charge of the Tanker mooring, VLCC, Suez Max, etc… pilots with experienced Unlimited Masters reconverted to Marine Pilotage, and mooring assistance with experienced marine officers and polyvalent diving seamen trained for tanker mooring to CALM buoys or Tandem mooring operations.
The pilot coordinates the approach and mooring operation. To achieve this operation safely and with the best efficiency there is close cooperation between the Tug(s), the mooring team on deck who is assisting the Tanker Crew, the workboat crew and the Floating unit FSO or FPSO.
The pilot and the mooring master remain on board of the Tanker, for crew supervision to ensure the safety and the good coordination with the floating unit marine team in charge of the offloading.
Our network of qualified staff has and will continue to offer a proven reliability to guarantee our clients successful and safe Tanker lifting operations in the offshore environment.
