The contract value is close to NOK 600 million. The fabrication and assembly will mainly be carried out in Stavanger, but also with contribution from other Norwegian and international sub-suppliers.
A bridge between the riser platform and the drilling platform and one flare tower (riser platform) will be delivered in 2018, and the remaining two bridges and one flare tower (processing platform) will be delivered in 2019.
The combined weight of all three bridges is 4,700 tonnes, and if put together the overall length of all three bridges totals 260 metres.
Phase 1 of the Johan Sverdrup field development consists of four platforms, and these bridges will connect all the platforms. The two flare towers will be distributed on the processing and riser platforms.
The project has so far awarded contracts totalling close to NOK 60 billion, with a Norwegian share of more than 70%.
