FMC Technologies and Aker Solutions Line Up More Layoffs

American provider of equipment and services for the energy industry, FMC Technologies, and Norwegian oil services company, Aker Solutions, are planning additional workforce reductions, both at their subsea services businesses at Ågotnes, Norway.

FMC Technologies is reportedly letting go up to 200 workers as the company enters lower activity season on the Norwegian shelf.

At Aker Solutions, as many as 100 employees, mainly offshore workers, will be temporarily laid off, starting next month.

“Temporary layoffs have been chosen instead of dismissals as activity typically picks up in the spring due to seasonal work,” said Aker Solutions’ spokesperson, Anne Cecilie Lund-Andersen.
