Aker Solutions Cuts Up to 200 Jobs in Subsea Division

Aker Solutions has notified employees at its subsea services facility in Ågotnes, Norway, that it has become necessary to adjust the plant’s workforce capacity because of a decline in activity in the Norwegian market.

Between 150 and 200 positions in Ågotnes may be affected. Adjustments will be made through normal employee turnover, reassignments to other parts of the company and dismissals.

“Our Norwegian subsea services unit has had a slow start to the year as oil companies reduce spending and delay some projects,” said Per Harald Kongelf, head of Aker Solutions in Norway. “This makes it necessary for us to adjust capacity in this area.”

Aker Solutions had about 8,000 own subsea area employees at the end of the first quarter of 2015. Approximately 3,000 of these were in Norway and the rest were in countries including Brazil, Angola, Congo-Brazzaville, Malaysia and the UK.
