Polarkonsult part of Norne Lifetime extension analysis


Our structural analysis team have carried out extensive calculations and analyses for the Norne FPSO over the last years. The job has been part of Statoils assessment of lifetime extension of Norne for 2030. The initial lifetime of Norne FPSO was until 2014.

Our team has delivered local- and global structural analyses as well as an assessement of different maintenance and docking alternatives for the hull. Aker Solutions in Tromsø has also delivered part of the study. Based on these studies, Statoil has decided to carry out necessary works for the extension without docking.

- We have a frame contract with Statoil, effective since 2005. Throughout these years we have delivered structural- and stability analyses for Norne. The assignment have been interesting and challenging and we are proud to be a reliable supplier for Statoil in the north, says Managing Director Sigmund Sørensen.
