Aker Solutions has been awarded contracts for the supply of Pusnes offshore loading systems for ten shuttle tankers that will operate in Brazil and Norway. The total contract value for Aker Solutions is approximately NOK 150 million. Several major South Korean shipyards have awarded Aker Solutions contracts for the supply of Pusnes bow loading system for 10 suezmax shuttle tankers. Eight of the shuttle tankers are being built for various ship-owners, and will operate in Brazilian waters. Two of the shuttle tankers will operate for a Norwegian ship-owner at the Goliat field in the Barents Sea.

The Pusnes bow loading system enables a safe and secure connection for the hose to the shuttle tanker. This connection can quickly and safely be disconnected if necessary, without creating surge loads in the hose.

"These contracts for Brazilian and Norwegian waters confirm the unique global market position of our bow loading systems," says Leif Haukom, head of Aker Solutions' mooring and loading business.

Delivery of the equipment will take place within 2012 and 2013. The contracts have been booked as order intake in the third quarter. The contract party is Aker Solutions' wholly-owned subsidiary Aker Pusnes AS.
