Enabling conventional tankers to directly load and export oil
Teekay’s HiLoad Dynamic Positioning (DP) unit compliments Teekay Offshore’s current market leading position within shuttle tanker operations and broadens our portfolio of offshore loading services.
With emerging needs for new solutions in locations such as Brazil, where cargoes destined for long-haul export are on the rise, the HiLoad enables conventional tankers to directly load and export the oil to any market in a safe and cost-efficient way.
The self-propelled system attaches to and enables tankers up to VLCC size (320.000 dwt) to connect to production units without the support of tugboats, anchor handling vessels or hawsers.
The dynamic positioning technology makes certain that the distance between tankers and offloading installations remains safe.
