In the summer of 2014 Aibel was awarded a contract for a FEED study, Engineering, and Management Assistance for the Statoil project. Since then, detailed engineering of tower and EIT system, as well as overall responsibility for system integration, have been included in the contract.

“The procurement work will start immediately and proceed until next spring. We shall provide equipment and material for several fabrication sites,” said Project Manager Petter Sveindal.

The additional order means that Aibel will further expand its knowledge base within the Renewables business unit, the company said.

“The participation in the Hywind project, which will continue until 2017, may open new possibilities for Aibel in a growing international market,” said EVP Renewables, Erling Matland.
