HOOFDDORP, the Netherlands -- Bluewater Energy Services has introduced a composite cryogenic hose made with Dyneema fiber for high volume offshore LNG transfer.

Bluewater's large-bore hose construction includes a circular braided layer made from Dyneema, a key enabling component providing the composite cryogenic hose with high axial strength combined with flexibility along with increased pressure capacity.

Key characteristics of the light weight composite cryogenic hose are its tensile load performance, pressure capability, flexibility, and bending endurance. This allows easy and controlled offshore handling and reliable operations, the company says.
