Norway’s Bergen Group AAK has been awarded a five-year framework agreement with an unnamed international operator on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
The framework agreement has an estimated total value of approx. NOK 40-60 million ($4.8M – $7.3M) for the period from now and until 2023, the company said on Tuesday.
It applies to various types of mechanical assignments on offshore installations where complex access technology are required. In addition, the framework agreement also includes the possibility of delivering relevant prefabrication.
Bergen Group AAK is a subsidiary of Bergen Group ASA. The company is a provider of access techniques used for maintenance, modifications and operations, typically for work at height or areas with complicated access.
CEOin Bergen Group ASA, Torgeir Nærø, considers the frame contract as a positive confirmation of Bergen Group AAK maintaining its competitive edge towards the offshore market.
Nærø said: “Bergen Group AAK has a long experience in performing various types of service and maintenance operations under challenging conditions both in height and on installations with demanding access. During the spring, we have registered an increasing demand for access technology services both in the offshore and in the onshore market. The increased demand combined with new long-term framework agreements provides basis for growth and an expansion of the workforce.”
It is worth reminding that Bergen Group acquired its compatriot provider of access technology AAK Energy Services about a year ago.
