Management, engineering and procurement of the subsea production system will be primarily performed at Aker Solutions' headquarters in Oslo, Norway. Fabrication and manufacturing will take place in Tranby, Moss and Egersund in Norway and in Aberdeen in the UK.

 

Final deliveries will be made in Q2 2013.
