What is ELSBM or Exposed Location Single Buoy Mooring ?

Exposed Location Single Buoy Mooring (ELSBM) (a development of CALM) is designed for use in deep water where bad weather is common. With this type of SPM the  buoy is replaced by a large cylindrical floating structure. The structure is surmounted by a helicopter platform, has reels for lifting hawsers and hoses clear of the water, and is fitted with emergency accommodation. Its anchors may lie up to half a mile from the structure.
