Ready for start-up of offshore activities in the Johan Sverdrup Hook-up Project, phase 1

May 23, 2018

In 2017, Bilfinger Industrier Norge was awarded the service contract for insulation, scaffolding and surface treatment by the upstream service company Aibel AS related to hook-up of the Johan Sverdrup Drilling Platform. In June 2018, we are ready for offshore mobilization and start-up of the offshore activities.

Bilfinger Industrier Norge have worked closely together with Aibel and Equinor since start-up of the project in 2017, to prepare for the hook-up activities offshore. Our personnel have been involved in a familiarization program onshore at Aibel's yard in Haugesund, Norway to prepare all parties involved for the activities to be performed in the field.

The scope of work for the offshore activities are approximately 90,000 manhours for Bilfinger and the scope will be carried out in the period from June 2018 to October 2019.

All the work packages for the 5 hook-up zones are now ready. Our site leaders are currently surveying and verifying all scope at the yard in Haugesund and coordinating loadout of material, equipment, including 100 tonnes of scaffolding. The sail away date is set to May 27, 2018 and first mobilization offshore is June 4, 2018.

We are well prepared and are looking forward to an exciting, safe and efficient offshore hook-up period.
