Trelleborg partners to supply seals for Remora Hi Load project


Trelleborg supplies newly engineered seals for Remora

Loading of cargo from offshore oil and gas facilities requires specialist equipment. In design of this, safety
and operational efficiency are a priority. Remora ASA has developed HiLoad, a unique technology for
transfer of cargo from a FPSO (floating production storage and offloading) vessel to a tanker.
To maximise usability it can be attached to virtually any tanker, without modification, with no manual
operation in the wave zone, maximising safety. This and the way the unit is ‘locked’ to the tanker hull
extends its use to optimise operational efficiency, said an official spokesman.

Trelleborg Engineered Products,  a business unit of Trelleborg Group, supplies an advanced sealing and
fendering configuration for the HiLoad. The use of hydrostatic pressure is one of the key principles behind the advanced technology of the
‘locking’ system. This acts on the top of the HiLoad pontoon and is transferred to the tanker hull through
the rubber sealing components from Trelleborg Engineered PRoducts

Trelleborg Engineered Products specially engineered the materials for the rubber components that are
integral to the attachment and locking process. These need to operate under pressures up to four bar
and withstand a wide temperature range between 0°C and +45°C. The components are based on proven
technology used for Gina seals successfully installed on immersed tunnels worldwide.
