Aker Solutions Lines Up 650 Layoffs

Norwegian oil services company, Aker Solutions, is said to be reducing its workforce capacity mainly in Norway, UK and India.

According to reports, about 650 positions may be affected due to continued market slowdown and as part of company’s global reorganization.

It is understood that some 100 positions may be affected in Aberdeen and London, while 270 jobs could go in Norway.

In Norway, around 170 positions could be axed at Aker Solutions’ Ågotnes subsea services facility, and about 100 positions at the company’s yard in Egersund.

Reportedly, some other locations in Norway may also be somewhat affected, but the company’s spokesperson was quoted saying it is too early to be more specific.
