VIDEO: Equinor installed 14 templates in one month
In one month the two vessels Edda Freya and Normand Vision installed 14 templates, delivered by Aker Solutions and TechnipFMC, at four fields on the Norwegian Continental Shelf.
They are all built according to the same, new standard. After a significant increase in the price level for subsea equipment over several years, we now see that standardization and simplification strengthens the competitiveness of the subsea industry, providing jobs both onshore and offshore. Askeladd, Johan Castberg, Troll Phase 3 and Snorre Expansion Project still creates a high activity level in yards along the Norwegian coast. Now they are building the manifolds for the templates – and even more templates.
