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.
