Kvaerner has been awarded a contract with Repsol Norge AS for the construction of a permanent caisson support structure for the Yme New Development project.

The contract, with a value of around NOK 70 million, is a construction contract. Kvaerner's scope includes procurement of materials and construction of the Yme support structure which is 38 metres tall and weighs 1 300 tonnes. Planning, procurement and method work start immediately, while the fabrication in Verdal starts in January 2018. Delivery of the Caisson Permanent Support is planned for June 2018. Constructing the support structure will engage around 60-70 people at Kvaerner's yard in Verdal in the building period.

"For the yard in Verdal this is an important contract, which in terms of capacity fits well with the construction of the drilling and process platform jackets for Johan Sverdrup and the four blisters for Njord, which will be delivered next year", says Sturla Magnus, EVP in Kvaerner responsible for Structural Solutions and the yard in Verdal.
