"Based on our record high order backlog of almost NOK 60 billion, and an estimated 10 per cent annual growth rate in offshore spending over the next five years, Aker Solutions, with its current portfolio of business areas, has the potential to double its revenues again - from 2012 to 2017," says Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman of Aker Solutions.

Additionally, we will prioritise our financial and human resources harder than what we have done in the past, and develop a better balance in our portfolio of products and services," adds Øyvind Eriksen.
