ABS grants approval for Remora HiLoad DP BR

ABS has granted approval in principle for the Remora HiLoad DP BR, a second generation of the HiLoad dynamic positioning (DP) unit that attaches to and keeps conventional tankers in position when loading from offshore installations.

The HiLoad technology, which was developed over 14 years, is based on the HiLoad Attachment System, which enables offloading to any conventional oil or LNG carrier without requiring modifications.

Upon completion of class requirements, the Remora HiLoad DP BR will receive the A1, AMS-NP, DPS-2 and UWILD notations. The functional description, Tanker Loading and Station Keeping System, will be included in the ABS Record in addition to the other class notations.

In mid-2013, Remora AS was contracted by BG Group to perform a FEED study for the next generation of HiLoad DP units. The HiLoad DP BR unit design will include increased engine power and the capability to maneuver vessels larger than suezmax-size in the Brazil Santos Basin environment.

The HiLoad technology is jointly owned by Remora AS and HiLoad LNG AS, a 100 percent subsidiary of Sevan Marine ASA. Teekay Corp. is the largest owner of both Remora and Sevan Marine.
