Norsafe to deliver new lifeboat systems to Statoil’s Njord A platform

Norsafe GES 52 freefall lifeboat

Norsafe has received orders from Kværner relating to the delivery of new lifeboat systems to Statoil’s Njord A platform.

Norsafe will supply three lifeboat systems of its largest freefall lifeboat, the GES 52, with compatible davits. The lifeboat systems are built according to SOLAS and DNV-OS-E406, and although the products were developed just a few years ago, they have already been delivered to many installations worldwide. The contract is worth over 35 million Norwegian kroner and will be delivered in 2018 and 2019.

The upgrade of the platform is part of the project that Statoil has called “Njord Future” with the purpose of extending the life of the Njord field.

The Njord field where the Njord A platform is normally stationed, lies approximately 130 kilometres North West of Kristiansund and 30 kilometres west of the Draugen field in the Norwegian Sea. Njord A was originally delivered in 1997 by the organisation that is known as Kværner today. The contract with Kværner shows that Norsafe has good competitive products and technical solutions that its customers value.

We are proud to have been chosen by Kværner to be a part of this important upgrade project. The cooperation with Aker Solutions and Kværner has been orderly, informative and challenging. To have succeeded and secured this contract shows that the efforts we have made with these upgrade projects have been correct, both in terms of technical solutions, products and the implementation model. Today we have every reason to be proud,” said CEO of the Norsafe Group, Dag Songedal.
