The search for toroidal surface current equilibria for axisymmetric and nonaxisymmetric configurations goes back to the late 1950s. In this study three-dimensional magnetohydrodynamics equilibria with surface currents on a toroidal canal surface are constructed. Inside the surface the pressure is constant and the magnetic field vanishes. The vacuum magnetic field lines on the surface are closed in the poloidal section which corresponds to infinite rotational transform.
