Since its foundation in 1978, Bluewater has built a technological lead specialising in design, development, lease and operation of tanker- based production and storage systems, and has become a leading provider of innovative Single Point Mooring systems.

The company has designed, manufactured, supplied and installed many innovative FPSO, FSO and SPM systems for oil companies worldwide through turnkey supply and time charter contracts. The company also provides operational and logistic management and support for FPSO and FSO systems.

Our FPSO fleet
Bluewater Energy Services has designed, owned and operated ten FPSO’s, of which three have been retired and two have been sold back to the oil companies. Presently Bluewater owns and operates five FPSOs for our clients through a leasing construction. The vessels are designed to high specification and to operate in the harshest environmental conditions, under the most stringent regulatory regimes. The experience gained by these projects enables Bluewater to design, build and operate FPSOs fit for purpose at any location in the world.

Mooring systems
Bluewater has developed some of the most innovative Single Point Mooring (SPM) systems in service from Catenary Anchor Leg Mooring (CALM) Buoys, to Turret Mooring and Tower systems featuring multiple risers. Each system has its own characteristics and fields of application. Bluewater can supply mooring and fluid transfer systems as part of a full scope for F(P)SOs or offshore terminals, or on an individual basis as part of a sub-contract. There are several mooring systems which can be divided in different groups, each group containing variations of the same principle.

Offshore Cryogenic Loading Tower
Developers of small scale LNG terminals are motivated for the cost optimisation of LNG infrastructure. Bluewater’s offshore Cryogenic Loading Tower (CLT) provides a cost effective Singe Point Mooring solution. The bottom fixed tower is equipped with one or more aerial cryogenic hoses. If required, a vapour return line can be included. To ensure operational and environmental safety, the system uses a proven quick-disconnection and/or weak-link capabilities to prevent spillage.
