01. Jun Edvard Grieg contract to MSS
MSS is awarded an important contract to supply phenolic composite grating to the Edvard Grieg Project.
The contract is awarded by Kvaerner Stord, where the scope of supply includes phenolic composite grating for the Edvard Grieg project. Lundin Norway is the operator of the field. The contract includes the supply of approximately 2500-3000 m2 grating, to be used in areas for walkways on the platform. Deliveries will start in this summer and the main scope will be delivered during 2013.
The use of phenolic composite grating provides many benefits and savings versus other materials such as steel and aluminum. We are talking about a weight savings compared with steel grating at more than 100 tons. Another significant advantage of this product is the considerably easier offshore installation method, compared with other relevant products. This is primarily due to common use of hand tools for cutting of materials, says Managing Director of MSS, Kjetil Jacobsen.
In Norway, this product was first introduced at the Grane platform back in 2003. MSS, which is the Norwegian responsible vendor will in connection with the Edvard Grieg contract have delivered approximately 60 000 m2 on the Norwegian Sector.
