Aker Delivers Floating Platform To Statoil
Aker Solutions has designed, engineered and assembled a semi-submersible platform for the Gjoa oil and gas field offshore Norway that is expected to help significantly reduce carbon emissions. With a topside weight of 22,000 tonnes and hull dry weight of 15,000 tonnes, the Gjoa deck measures 110m long and 85m wide. The platform's highest point is the flare tower at 143m.

More than 500 Aker Solutions engineers have been mobilised to design the platform, from Oslo, Norway, and Mumbai, India. During the final assembly at Stord, peak manning reached 3,000 skilled operators. Installation of the mooring system, transportation and installation of the Gjoa platform is carried out by Aker Solutions' subsidiary Aker Marine Contractors.
