The Moss CS-series of semi-submersible catamaran platforms has established itself over the last 25 years as one of the most successful and widely-used platform designs. Their success is based on their design to meet a large variety of requirements. The structural layout of the lower hull allows alternative configurations of the deck arrangements and installations. This flexibility makes the CS-series ideal for applications other than drilling, such as well service, or as special purpose platforms such as the SDX-1 radar platform used by U.S Department of Defense.
Ranging in size from only 25,000 tons displacement up to 75,000 tons, the CS-series platforms are rugged and long-lived with excellent motion characteristics. Field proven in the harshest of environments, they guarantee a long life with outstanding performance.
The MOSS ECO™ comprises the latest available technologies with regard to energy efficiency and discharge/ emissions:
- Moss EcoDrive™
- Moss EcoGreen™
- Moss EcoLNG™
The CS50 is our most popular semi. It is valued for its low weight compared to the high amount of deck load, which is ideal for platforms operating in ultra-deep water and harsh environments. The platform can be delivered in both dynamic positioning (DP) and regular anchor moored state. It accommodates dual activity and high capacity drilling systems. A special “non-harsh” version of the CS50 has also been developed for optimal performance for milder environments while still maintaining the proven characteristics and features of the CS50.
Developed with lighter equipment, the smaller CS30 and CS40 perform in shallow to medium-deep water either anchor-moored or as DP platforms
The CS60 and CS70 are the high end platforms used for operations in areas which are difficult to reach, and the supplies and equipment needs to be onboard for a long period of time.
