Vulcan SFM has delivered the final 100t cast-node to Dutch company Heerema for installation on the Valemon gas and condensate field, offshore Norway.

Located 160km west of Bergen, the Valemon platform will have a steel jacket and will be equipped with separation facilities for gas, condensate and water.

The castings will form high-strength and fatigue-resistant nodal joints to connect the main leg and brace tubulars, which make up the jacket of an offshore oil platform.

The delivery is part of a £3m, six-casting contract to supply nodes, padeyes and hubs, which will be the sole lifting points for the Valemon jacket.
