Aker BP Hires DeepOcean for Subsea IMR Works
Aker BP has awarded a contract to DeepOcean for subsea inspection, maintenance and repair (IMR) activities.
The contract has a total market value of minimum NOK 300 million during the initial three years, with an option to continue the activities for an additional six years (2+2+2).
The contract includes ROV activities related to subsea inspections, maintenance and repairs on Aker BP-operated assets, namely Valhall, Ula, Ivar Aasen, Alvheim and Skarv.
Aker BP and DeepOcean have entered into a combined framework agreement with a binding minimum volume per year, the company said.
“This is an important contract for Aker BP. We invited several companies to tender. DeepOcean won this contract due to a very good offer based on the implementation of new technology and safe, cost-effective solutions,” says Olav Henriksen, SVP Projects in Aker BP.
