Kværner place major jacket subcontract with Harland and Wolff

Friday 09 November 2012

World leader and renowned EPC jacket provider Kvaerner is contracted to design, build and install Lundin’s 13,400 tonne Edvard Grieg jacket and Total’s 14,200 tonne Martin Linge jacket.   The jackets will be installed in circa 110-115 metres water depth within the Norwegian Sector of the North Sea in 2014 for production start in 2015.

The Harland and Wolff scope of work comprises the fabrication and delivery of four pile sleeve clusters for each jacket.   The clusters each weigh approximately between 400 tonnes and 500 tonnes and are vital elements of the overall jackets.   Harland and Wolff will also supply floatation tanks for both jackets.

Harland and Wolff Chief Executive Officer Robert J Cooper said, ‘After a series of successful recent projects in the offshore oil, gas and renewable energy sectors, this is a major opportunity for Harland and Wolff to continue to demonstrate its capabilities.’ 

He continued ‘In July this year we completed the highly successful FPSO SeaRose project ahead of schedule, on budget and with no injuries.   We are delighted that we have secured another important project within this sector and we are looking forward to an intense but safe and rewarding project together.’

Harland and Wolff Project Manager Trevor McCormick said, ‘We are proud that Kvaerner have placed their trust in us.   We understand the vital importance of our elements to the entire project and the consequences of failure.   We are fully committed to delivering this project on schedule, to the highest quality and in a safe manner’.
