Rolls-Royce to Upgrade Njord A Mooring System

Rolls-Royce has been chosen by Norway-based Kvaerner to provide a mooring system for Statoil’s oil platform Njord A.

Njord A is being upgraded by Kvaerner and Rolls-Royce has been chosen to provide an upgrade to its mooring system. The contract has a value of about £15 million.

Njord A is a semisubmersible floating steel platform, with an integrated deck with drilling and processing facilities, as well as living quarters.

It is located in the Njord oil field, around 130 km northwest of the Kristiansund and 30 km west of the Draugen field.

Njord A has a 12-point mooring system which will be upgraded to a modern 17-point system.

Rolls-Royce will supply low pressure hydraulic driven winches, fairleads and a control system. The semisubmersible four-column production platform will be moored at about 330 meters water depth.

The delivery from Rolls-Royce is scheduled for 2018. The platform is planned to be back in operation offshore in 2020 and to operate for another 20 years.

Knut Hovland, Rolls-Royce, director of Customer & Services – Marine, said: “We are proud to be part of this extensive upgrade programme. It is the first time in the Norway’s history as an oil producing country that a platform is being towed to shore for an extensive upgrade. Previous upgrades have been done offshore.”
