14 Template Installations in One Month

In one month - from June 11 to July 13 - 14 templates delivered by Aker Solutions and TechnipFMC were installed by vessels Edda Freya and Normand Vision on behalf of Equinor at four fields on the Norwegian continental shelf.

The templates are all built according to the same, new standard, Equinor said. Following an increase in the price level for subsea equipment over several years, the Norwegian energy company said it now sees that standardization and simplification strengthens the competitiveness of the subsea industry, providing jobs both onshore and offshore.

The Askeladd, Johan Castberg, Troll Phase 3 and Snorre Expansion Projects have created a high activity level in yards along the Norwegian coast. They are currently building the manifolds for the templates - and even more templates, Equinor said.
