During the course of 2014, Aibel has announced several staff reductions due to reduced workload.
Over the past year, the company’s workload has been declining. This has resulted in several staff reductions. Simultaneously, Aibel has done extensive work to improve its competitiveness within the different business units.
Employees within staff functions as well as the company’s core business – engineering, procurement, fabrication and project management – have been asked to leave their positions. All eight of Aibel’s Norwegian offices, as well as its international offices, have been affected by the reductions.
