To connect the dry bulk system with a platform or with shore-based facilities, CargoMaxx comes with stainless steel quick-acting couplings. These are also standard on most offshore support vessels. Pipelines on board should be fitted with outside NPT treath. All couplings come with steel closing caps, for usage during sea voyages. A blow-off valve is connected within hand reach distance of the coupling, to check if the line is not under pressure before the cap is removed.
