The contract value is estimated to approximately NOK 38 million ($3,7 million), and Multiconsult’s delivery is scheduled to be completed during 2023.

The contract includes an option for further management assistance and site support during the construction period.

The Snøhvit Future project consists of land compression and electrification of the Hammerfest LNG facilities at Melkøya, Norway.

According to Equinor and partners, the electrification of the facility at Melkøya will reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 850 000 tonnes of CO2 per year.

The project’s emission reductions correspond to 2% of Norway’s annual emissions.

Earlier, Equinor granted compatriot energy services company Aibel an engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) contract for Hammerfest LNG modifications in connection with the Snøhvit Future project.
