The drilling support module (DSM), which is the second largest, will be built at the company's yard in Haugesund. The final module, the drilling equipment set (DES), will be built by partner Nymo in Grimstad. 

Work on combining the three modules will start in the autumn of 2017. This will take place at the company's yard in Haugesund. The finished platform will be handed over to Statoil in the second quarter of 2018. 

In addition to Nymo, who will build one of the modules, Odfjell and National Oilwell will also make important contributions. CEO and President Jan Skogseth is confident that Aibel will make the project a success for Statoil.

Since then, we have optimised the implementation model and worked hard to streamline the organisation and work methods. Winning this prestigious project gives us a unique opportunity to make good on our ability to deliver,” he says.

Aibel has composed an optimal organisation to undertake an efficient new structure project.

“With extremely skilled and experienced managers and professionals, we are planning on extensive interaction between the various locations. This places high demands on expertise, cooperation and implementation capacity, but will also ensure a more optimal implementation of the project,” says Nils Arne Hatleskog, EVP for Field Development. 

Aibel estimates using almost 6,000 man-years on the Johan Sverdrup project, shared between the various disciplines. In addition, there will be all the spin-off effects at and around the areas where the project will be carried out.
