OSLO, Norway – Aker Solutions has successfully completed the manufacturing and subsequent load-out of eight subsea manifolds and six riser bases for Eni Norge’s Goliat project in the Barents Sea.

The load-out began on Tuesday, and this weekend the heavy lift vessel Happy Dragon will sail away with her giant load.

The delivery is the yard’s second hardware load-out for the Goliat subsea project. The first was also delivered on schedule when it sailed out of Egersund at the end of March last year.

Aker Solutions’ Goliat contract, signed in September 2009, comprises of engineering, procurement and construction of a complete subsea production system. Subsea hardware deliveries include eight overtrawlable four-slot subsea templates with manifolds, wellheads system, 24 subsea trees, subsea and topside controls systems, 20 km (12 mi) of steel tube umbilicals, work-over equipment, and a tie-in and connection system.
