Fjellstrand, a Norwegian company, has signed a contract with offshore living quarters modules supplier, Apply Leirvik for panel production which will be fitted to the Johan Sverdrup project residential module.
Apply Leirvik will deliver one of the largest residential modules for the Johan Sverdrup platform. The module is being built in Kvaerner’s shipyard in Stord, Norway. The platform will be operated by Statoil once installed in the Johan Sverdrup field in the North Sea.
According to Fjellstrand, the contract value for the panels is approximately NOK 10 million but could be increased with options. It further said that the contract provides an important contribution to aluminum production in the company’s Oma shipyard.
Fjellstrand said that production starts immediately and will employ up to twenty workers until November.
In addition to this order, 6 elevator shafts are being produced by Fjellstrand, to be installed on several platforms on the Johan Sverdrup field. When combined, these two orders will, according to Fjellstrand, employ between 40-50 workers.
