Platform delivered to the Hod Field From Aker’s Yard in Verdal
Today, the topside of the normally unmanned wellhead platform for the Hod field is transported from Aker Solutions in Verdal to the Aker BP operated field. This is the second project for the Fixed Facilities Alliance, which was established in the spring of 2017.
Hod B has been an important project that was initiated only hours after the temporary changes to the tax system for the oil and gas industry received a broad majority in the Storting in June last year. The project prefabrication started at the yard in Verdal just hours after the agreement was made and has meant a lot to activity and jobs.
The project is the second project delivered by Aker BP’s alliance for delivery of fixed platforms. The customer Aker BP and the main suppliers Aker Solutions and ABB have worked in a joint organization, thereby reducing a lot of time and costs compared to a traditional model where the customer and supplier have separate roles and responsibilities.
The Alliance delivery includes design, procurement, fabrication, preparation for sea transport, as well as hook-up and assistance for completion on the field. The 2,000-metric-tons topside will be installed on the steel jacket delivered from Aker Solutions’ yard in June. The delivery has been executed without serious harm to people or the environment.
