HAMILTON, Bermuda -- An undisclosed client has awarded APL a contract for the supply of two, single-anchor loading (SAL) systems.

Each system consists of a single anchor on the seabed with flexible riser and mooring equipment for transfer of oil to shuttle tankers. Once the tanker is connected to the system it can weathervane freely around the SAL anchor base while loading oil, APL says.

Delivery is scheduled for the first half of 2011.
