Aker Solution' marine operations unit has entered into a long-term agreement with ABB regarding installation of power cables and related services. ABB will charter one of Aker Solutions' new vessels for installation campaigns during 2012 and 2013. Aker Solutions estimates that this can generate revenues up to $82.3m. The agreement also includes options for further campaigns in the period 2014 - 2016. Key deliverables from Aker Soutions will in addition to the vessel include project management, engineering and offshore execution. The vessel is a state-of-the-art installation vessel uniquely equipped to install long, heavy power cables and subsea umbilicals.  It is one of Aker Solutions' vessels already under construction.
