STAVANGER, NORWAY: ABB AS and Siemens Energy AS have been awarded framework agreements for providing service of electrical equipment on all Equinor’s installations on the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS) and onshore plants in Norway. The total value of the agreements with options is estimated at around NOK 4.5 billion. The scope is expected to require about 100 man-years in Norway.

The agreements are awarded on behalf of Equinor-operated licences on the NCS and onshore plants in Norway, and on behalf of Gassco as the operator for the Kollsnes and Karsto gas processing plants. The agreements can also be applied globally.

Under the framework agreements, the suppliers will continue to provide operation, maintenance, modification, and upgrade of the electrical equipment installed onshore and offshore. The suppliers will also deliver front-end engineering and design (FEED) as well as engineering, procurement, construction, and installation (EPCI) for new electrical projects. Both framework agreements have a firm period of eight years. The agreement awarded to Siemens Energy also includes three four-year options.

“We are pleased to continue our cooperation with ABB and Siemens Energy. The contracts will be a key enabler to ensure safe and sustainable operation and maintenance of our offshore and onshore facilities. They will also contribute to sustain important jobs in Norway for the supplier companies,” said Peggy Krantz-Underland, Equinor’s chief procurement officer (CPO).

“We anticipate an increased use of electrical equipment on the NCS, thereby replacing the need for fuel-driven engines. This will give us increased flexibility to use different power sources, and contribute to CO2 emission reductions,” said Gunnar Nakken, senior vice president in Operations Technology in Equinor.
