Fossil Energy – Jacket Construction
Aker BP has awarded Heerema Vlissingen a contract for procurement and construction for the Munin jacket in the Yggdrasil area.
“This is an important contract for the Yggdrasil development. With this award we have placed all major fixed facilities contracts in the Yggdrasil area, and we are in line with our execution plan,” states Project Director Peter Kupka for fixed facilities deliveries in Yggdrasil.
“Heerema Fabrication Group Vlissingen is an experienced international contractor with a solid track record. I am very pleased that they will contribute to Yggdrasil and look forward to starting the execution phase for the Munin jacket,” Kupka continues.
The jacket contract was signed on May 23.
The Munin jacket weighs 5.800 tonnes. The height is 130 meters, and it will be installed in a water depth of 105 metres. Eight piles of 60 metres will be used to secure the jacket to the seabed. Installation is planned in 2025, and Aker BP has secured lifting capacity for all the installations in the Yggdrasil area.
