Aker Solutions to deliver largest umbilical system ever. Client unknown

Norway’s Aker Solutions has won an order valued at more than NOK 1.6 billion to deliver the largest umbilicals system ever.

The contract entails delivery of 250 kilometers of steel-tube umbilicals linking a subsea development to an existing offshore platform.

“We are honored to have been selected to work on this project, which is groundbreaking in terms of the size and technology of the umbilicals system,” said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.

The work will be led by Aker Solutions in Oslo and manufacturing will take place at the company’s umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway. Delivery is set for the end of 2018.

The parties have agreed to not disclose the name of the project or customer at this point.

Umbilical systems are full service connections used to transport data, power and liquids between oil and gas installations on the seafloor to onshore facilities or platforms.

This is not be the first time Aker Solutions has won a record umbilical order.

The company in June 2016 said it had secured a contract to deliver  its longest-ever umbilicals system at the Zohr offshore gas field in the Egyptian part of the Mediterranean Sea.

The agreement with Petrobel in Egypt was worth more than NOK 1 billion ($122.2M).

It stipulated the delivery of 180 kilometers of steel tube umbilicals that will connect the Zohr subsea development to an offshore control platform.
