On Monday 15 February 2016 Haugesund mayor Arne-Christian Mohn started the machine cutting the steel for the Johan Sverdrup drilling platform.
This marks the start of the construction of the Johan Sverdrup drilling platform at Aibel’s yard in Haugesund.
“Aibel won the contract for the construction of the drilling platform about one year ago. Following an extensive planning and engineering process it feels good to start the construction of the first of four topside structures for the Johan Sverdrup project”, says Kjetel Digre, Statoil’s senior vice president for the Johan Sverdrup project.
