Fossil Energy – Hammerfest LNG Modifications
Equinor has awarded Aibel a contract for Hammerfest LNG modifications in connection with the Snøhvit Future project.
The contract is subject to governmental approval of the project.
Aibel has been awarded an EPCI contract that involves engineering, procurement, construction and installation of two new processing modules related to the onshore compression and electrification of the Melkøya plant. They will also build a new receiving station for power from shore and carry out integration work at the plant.
The contract is an option in the FEED contract (front-end engineering and design) awarded to Aibel in September 2020.
Aibel will also carry out further upgrades of existing systems at Hammerfest LNG to make the plant more resilient for extended life until 2050.
This year and next, Aibel will award several major contracts to its subcontractors for work at the plant and will facilitate the use of local suppliers in several phases of the project, including construction. The engineering/design work starts immediately.
