The contract value is approximately 350 MNOK (EUR 45 mill).
-The award is a strong recognition of Scana’s capabilities and gives Scana a very strong foothold in Brazil. Also, it shows the great potential for Scana deliveries to the improving FPSO market, says CEO in Scana Industrier ASA, Mr. Rolf Roverud.
Manufacturing is planned to start 2(nd) quarter 2011 and deliveries commence from 1(st)quarter 2012 and continue into 2014. Project management will be in Norway and Brazil, while manufacturing and assembly are planned to take place in Europe and Brazil.
