Offloading Hose End Valves

The FES Offloading Hose End Valve (commonly referred to as a “North Sea Valve”) provides safe, leak free storage and connection of cargo offloading hoses, prior to fluid transfer.

Fitted to the end of cargo offloading hoses, the FES Offloading Hose End Valve is designed to be compatible with all existing transfer connections and can also be supplied as part of the FES complete Cargo Offloading Hose Reel System. Interfacing with the offloading vessel, the valve assembly helps to ensure a leak free connection during offloading activities.
