Aibel's activities in Hammerfest began in 2006 on the basis of the Snøhvit field expansion
Aibel holds the contract for maintenance and modification of Snøhvit LNG for Equinor. Gas from the Snøhvit field is transported to Melkøya outside of Hammerfest. Here it is cooled down to form LNG. Aibel provides designated operators for the MMO work at the Melkøya facility.
Aibel also has an office at Fuglenes in Hammerfest, only a few minutes' drive from Melkøya. The office is a crucial part of Aibel's investments in the north. It has been important to the company to recruit from and create ripple effects in the local community in Hammerfest.
Every year Aibel also takes on apprentices for the work on Melkøya.
