The assignment comprises the design and build of a new gas module on the Troll C platform. Work on the FEED study begins immediately and is due to be completed in May 2017. The option in the contract is for the actual implementation phase – project planning, purchasing, fabrication and installation – which would continue until the end of 2019. The work includes project planning, building and installation of the module, as well as associated work on the platform. The client is Statoil.

The study will be performed at Aibel’s office in Bergen, which has extensive experience of modification work on the Norwegian continental shelf. The implementation phase option would also be managed from Bergen, while the module would be built at Aibel’s yard in Haugesund.

“The Troll C assignment is very important to us and demonstrates our strong and improved competitiveness in what is still a challenging market. This assignment will demonstrate our strengths when it comes to jobs that combine expertise at modification and the building of new modules,” says Aibel’s EVP for Modifications and Yard Services, Bjørn Tollefsen.

The contract is valued at more than NOK 600 million, including the option. Up to 40 employees will be engaged on the project during the FEED phase.
