Aker Solutions receives NOK70 million offshore equipment contracts
The contract awards are from Teekay Corporation, Cosco Nantong Shipyard and Hyundai Heavy Industries for the supply of offshore loading systems. The contract party is Aker Solutions subsidiary Aker Pusnes. The Cosco contracts consist of bow loading systems and deck machinery for two shuttle tankers being built for Knutsen OAS Shipping. The contract with Hyundai is for an offloading system for the Usan floating, production, storage and offloading unit. Leif Haukom, president of Aker Pusnes, said: "The three shuttle tankers will be fitted with Aker Solutions bow loading systems which enable a safe and secure connection for the hose to the shuttle tanker. This connection can be quickly and safely disconnected in the event of an emergency without creating surge loads in the hose. Two of the shuttle tankers will operate in Brazil, these contracts for Brazilian waters confirm the unique global position of our bow loading systems."
