Pusnes bow loading systems for three new shuttle tankers

Finland’s MacGregor, part of Cargotec, has secured contracts to supply Pusnes bow loading systems for three newbuild shuttle tankers intended for operations in Brazilian waters. 

Pusnes solutions provide connections that allow shuttle tankers to load oil directly from offshore facilities while holding station by means of dynamic positioning systems.

South Korean shipyard Sungdong Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd will install a Pusnes bow loading system on a 157,000 dwt Suezmax DP2 shuttle tanker under construction for tanker specialist Tsakos Energy and Navigation Ltd.

The Greek headquartered company specified Pusnes loading systems for two earlier shuttle tankers, the Brasil 2014 and Rio 2016, both delivered in 2013.

The other two systems will be installed on a pair of 156,000 dwt Suezmax shuttle tankers under construction at Hyundai Heavy Industries in South Korea for Knutsen NYK Offshore Tankers AS.

“These prestigious orders include engineering, production and commissioning of our proven bow loading systems. They confirm our unique market position and increase our already large installed base in Brazilian waters,” says Ann-Kari Heier, Vice President for MacGregor Offshore Loading Systems. “An impressive reference list and our long, successful relations with the companies and yards concerned combined with our strong market position made us win these contracts.”
