The Euronav/OSG contract consists of offloading systems for two Floating Storage and Offloading Units (FSOs). The contract with MODEC is for two offloading systems for a Floating Production and Storage Offloading Unit (FPSO).

The offloading system delivered from Aker Solutions is a configuration of mooring and offloading equipment at the stern/bow of the FSO/FPSO which allows for offshore transfer of crude oil from the FSO/FPSO to a shuttle tanker.
