Aker Solutions has been awarded a sizeable contract from Aker BP to provide the subsea production system for the Trell and Trine field development, located in the Alvheim area of the North Sea. The development concept is a subsea tie-back to the Alvheim FPSO, using existing facilities and infrastructure.

Aker Solutions will deliver a subsea production system including three horizontal subsea trees, two manifolds, control systems, close to 30 kilometres of subsea umbilicals, as well as associated equipment and installation work. The work will start immediately with final deliveries scheduled for the first quarter of 2024.

“This award continues our long-standing collaboration with Aker BP and Subsea 7 in the Aker BP Subsea Alliance. The partnership enables Aker Solutions to engage early in the field development process, optimising design solutions and contributing to a positive final investment decision. We look forward to continuing our alliance with Aker BP and Subsea 7, with a continued focus on safe, efficient, and reliable operations,” says Maria Peralta, executive vice president and head of Aker Solutions’ Subsea business.

The contract will be booked as order intake in the third quarter of 2022 in the Subsea segment.
