Fossil Energy – Decommissioning
Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract for the dismantling and recycling of a platform topside and jacket in the North Sea area.
Aker aims to recycle close to 98 percent of the 29,000-tonne structures, contributing to reduced emissions and the circular economy.
“Decommissioning is a growing market. This award adds to an order backlog that already stretches to 2030, and provides further predictability so that we can continue to develop our facility and execution model, with a strong focus on safe operations and capability to deliver a high degree of recycling,” said SVP Decom Thomas Nygård.
The project consists of a topside with a weight of 19,000 tonnes and a steel jacket weighing 10,000 tonnes.
The structures will be delivered mainly as modules by Saipem’s semi-submersible heavy-lift vessel Saipem 7000 in the period from 2025 to 2027. The jacket will be delivered in two sections plus some minor items.
