Letter of Intent Signed with Aker Kvaerner on Gjoa Field

Friday, January 26, 2007
Aker Kvaerner has awarded Kongsberg Maritime a Letter of Intent for integrated control systems for safety and process automation on board a semi-submersible production platform destined to be used on the Gjoa oil and gas field in the North Sea. Aker Kværner will be building the platform deck, attaching it to the hull and preparing the platform for operation. Gaz de France Norway will be operator of the field.

Besides safety and automation systems, the contract covers the delivery of a process simulator, as well as integrated engineering for Aker Kværner. This contract requires the extensive use of so-called 'integrated operations', a technology and work process which make it possible to monitor and control large parts of the offshore operations from onshore. The Gjoa field is scheduled to come on stream in 2010.
