Oglaend System entered into a frame agreement with Equinor (previously Statoil) for the production and delivery of support systems to four platforms of the Johan Sverdrup field.

“The contract included engineering support, product design, production and delivery of our cost efficient and standardised multidisipline support system, cable ladders and cable trays,” CEO of Oglaend System, Geir Austigard, explains.

Two Oglaend System design engineers have been stationed at the Samsung yard in Korea throughout the construction phase. They have been working in rotation, one month on and one off, so that there would always be engineering support from Oglaend System available at the yard.

“We have direct contact with the end-customer and can help solve any issues onsite,” Design Engineer for Oglaend System, Stian Knudsen says.

The deliveries began in 2016 and it is expected that production will start at the end of 2019.

More opportunities have arisen since gaining this frame agreement. Oglaend System has been awarded contracts for both Johan Castberg and Johan Sverdrup phase two.
