OSLO, Norway, June 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Aker Solutions has been awarded a letter of intent from Equinor for the delivery of a subsea system for the Breidablikk project in the North Sea.
The scope of work covers a complete subsea production system, and associated equipment that includes 15 subsea trees in the first phase.
"We are delighted to be awarded a letter of intent by Equinor, which will lead to more activity at many of our facilities in Norway and beyond," said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.
The work will be carried out at Aker Solutions' locations in Fornebu, Tranby and Egersund, with additional deliveries from the UK and Brazil.
The potential contract value is approximately NOK 2 billion, excluding options.
