Aibel lays off 230 Haugesund workers

Norwegian engineering and construction company Aibel will reduce its workforce by additional 230 people.

The reductions will affect employees related to the Haugesund location. For the first time since Aibel started reducing its staff in 2014, the terminations now include employees within the construction area.

Up to 100 manual workers within the mechanical field will be affected. In addition, up to 130 non-manual workers will be terminated.

80 of these work in the CIC segment (Construction, Installation and Commissioning), while 50 are employed within EPM (Engineering, Procurement and Management).

The terminations are due to changes in the company’s workload. While previous terminations mainly have affected non-manual workers, it is now necessary to make adjustments to the operational part of the organisation, Aibel has explained.
