Aker Solutions won a contract from Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) to deliver a drilling equipment package for the production platform at the Mariner oilfield in the U.K. North Sea.

The parties agreed not to disclose the value of the order, which includes a complete topside equipment package. Aker Solutions will also provide necessary support services at DSME's shipyard in South Korea and during the offshore installation phase. Delivery of the equipment will be completed in 2015.

The contract includes an option to supply an identical drilling equipment package for the production facility at the nearby Bressay field. Mariner, located about 150 kilometers east of the Shetland Isles, and Bressay are operated by the oil company Statoil.

The contract work will mainly be executed at Aker Solutions' Kristiansand and Asker facilities in Norway, as well as Erkelenz in Germany. Installation and commissioning services will take place at DSME's yard in South Korea and in the North Sea.

The contract has been booked as order intake in the second quarter of 2013.
