Aker Solutions has signed a strategic, global collaboration agreement with Equinor to ensure mutual and continuous improvement on current and future subsea projects within the domains of safety, quality, technology, execution and cost.

"Aker Solutions and Equinor's ongoing collaboration has consistently generated mutually beneficial technology developments, working process simplifications and standardizations," says Luis Araujo, chief executive officer at Aker Solutions. "This agreement formalizes the companies' joint ambitions of achieving efficiency and improvement goals."

Several innovative and cost-efficient solutions have materialized from Aker Solutions' and Equinor's history of collaboration. Aker Solutions' newest subsea production system with vertical trees and associated tools were developed in close collaboration with Equinor, designed to be more efficient and reduce life-cycle costs. The subsea equipment is smaller and lighter than previous versions and has now become Equinor's standard solution. As well as adopting this technology on the Johan Castberg field, Equinor will use trees of the same design on its Troll and Askeladd fields offshore Norway and they have also been commissioned by other operators on the Norwegian Shelf, including Aker BP for the Ærfugl development.

"Equinor's Johan Castberg development is an example of what can be achieved when we work in close collaboration with customers," continues Luis Araujo.
