"We are very enthused by winning the front-end design work for the Goliat Development Project; Goliat is considered a strategically important project for Aker Solutions underpinning our position as a leading supplier of floating production platforms. Our Condeep® MonoFloater concept is developed for the harsh weather conditions that apply in the Barents Sea," says executive vice president Nils Arne Hatleskog in Aker Solutions. Contract party for Aker Solutions is Aker Engineering and Technology AS. The engineering work has already started and will continue through early Autumn 2008. Approximately 70 engineers will be working on the study at peak manning.
