Subsea 7 awards Martin Linge equipment deal to Westcon
Westcon, a provider of products and services to offshore rigs, ships and subsea modules, has been awarded a contract from Subsea 7 to deliver equipment to be used on the Martin Linge field, in the Norwegian North Sea.
With a basis in Westcon’s facilities in Floro, the company has been awarded a contract from Subsea 7 to produce three Riser Baser with associated protection structures, to be used on the Martin Linge field, which is operated by Total.
Steinar Matre, subsea department manager at Westcon, said: “This contract comes after a series of challenging and interesting subsea projects where there are enormously high standard when it comes to quality and safety in all parts of the production. In these types of projects, we get to use the width of expertise within production and project management in Westcon.
“We look forward to work together with Subsea 7 on this project – a project that further strengthen our position in the subsea market.”
According to Westcon, the contract with Subsea 7 was awarded after completing a number of similar projects since the company started its focus on the subsea production market almost two years ago.
“This is a challenging market to enter – especially in todays market conditions, but we have succeeded by offering hard work as well as top competence, HMS standards and systems for quality assurance. This has contributed to a returning flow of customers,” Matre says.
The Subsea 7 agreement is a large contract for Westcon’s subsea department, securing work for 40-50 people to March next year.
