Nymo is slated to build advanced equipment for a new platform on the Aker BP operated Valhall field in the North Sea. The scope of work ensures high activity, triples the number of apprentices and ensures full employment for several years to come for the offshore company based in the very south of Norway.
On Tuesday, 15 August, Aker BP CEO Karl Johnny Hersvik and Project Director Valhall PWP-Fenris in Aker BP Rannveig Storebø will cut the first steel for the appr. 1,000 tonnes module to be built at Nymo. The module will treat MEG (monoethylene glycol) that is recycled in pipelines between the new PWP platform that will be deployed on the Valhall field and the Fenris field 50 kilometres away. NOV is the primary supplier and has signed a letter of intent with Nymo to build the MEG module in Grimstad.
In addition, Nymo has been awarded a contract for the construction of the bridge that will connect the new Valhall PWP platform with the existing Valhall field centre. The bridge will be more than 100 meters long with a weight of around 1,200 tonnes and will be built at Nymo's facility at Eydehavn in Arendal. This contract has been awarded by Aker Solutions.
