The activities are taking place at the offshore White Rose field in Canada. The estimated value of the contract is said to be NOK 900 million for a five-year period. The contract includes options for extending the work for as many as 10 one-year periods.
The work includes modifications, studies and campaign maintenance services. The project will employ around 70 managers and engineers onshore, and a further 20 people on rotation offshore.
“We are delighted that Husky has chosen us as their preferred partner for offshore engineering services at the White Rose field,” says Tore Sjursen, head of maintenance, modifications and operations at Aker Solutions. “Our presence in North America is increasing and the award will be a good foundation for further growth in Canada.”
The White Rose field is located 350 kilometres southeast of St. John’s, Canada, and consists of a floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel.
