Aker Solutions has signed a strategic, global collaboration agreement with Equinor to improve current and future subsea projects.
The companies will work together within the domains of safety, quality, technology, execution and cost.
Aker Solutions' newest subsea production system with vertical trees and associated tools were developed in close collaboration with Equinor, designed to be more efficient and reduce lifecycle costs.
The subsea equipment is smaller and lighter than previous versions and has now become Equinor's standard solution.
As well as adopting this technology on the Johan Castberg field, Equinor will use trees of the same design on its Troll and Askeladd fields offshore Norway and they have also been commissioned by other operators on the Norwegian Shelf, including Aker BP for the Ærfugl development.
