  • ABS to class second-generation ultra-deepwater offloading unit

    HOUSTON -- ABS has been selected to class the Remora HiLoad dynamic positioning (DP) BR loading unit, a second generation of the HiLoad DP system that connects to and keeps conventional tankers in position during crude oil offloading from floating production installations. Traditional offloading methods using a mooring buoy solution can be expensive in ultra-deepwater fields such as those in Brazil's Santos basin.
