Aker Solutions has won a contract to supply subsea umbilicals to Noble Energy for the Tamar deepwater project in the Mediterranean Sea.

The new $46m contract covers 105km of steel tube umbilicals, bringing the total subsea umbilicals order from Noble Energy up to 330km.

Deliveries are expected in the third quarter of 2011, Aker said.

The new order is an exercise of options agreed under the initial Nkr650m ($110m) umbilical contract, which was announced earlier this year.
