Norwegian engineering and contracting firm Aker Solutions has secured a contract for maintenance and modifications work from energy company Equinor.

Under the framework agreement signed with Equinor, the Norwegian contractor will provide services at the Peregrino oil field in the deep waters of Brazil.

Aker Solutions said that the contract has a ‘fixed period’ of four years.

It also includes an option to receive an extension of additional two years.

Aker Solutions electrification, maintenance and modifications executive vice-president Linda Litlekalsøy Aase stated: “We are excited to build on our strong relationship with Equinor.

“Together, we will ensure safe and successful operations in Brazil, work to extend the lifetime of Equinor’s assets and find low-carbon solutions where possible.”

Aker Solutions’ strategy is to use its ‘subsea manufacturing facilities’ in Brazil as a hub for several types of deliveries, serving both local and international project developments.

In recent years, Aker Solutions secured several subsea contracts from Equinor for the latter’s Castberg, Troll and Breidablikk projects in Norway.

Aker Solutions manufactures parts required for the subsea equipment of these projects in Brazil.

Last month, Aker Solutions won two contracts from US multinational energy company ConocoPhillips for the Tommeliten Alpha development offshore Norway.

In September, Aker Solutions secured a three-year contract extension for maintenance and modification work from ConocoPhillips.
