Apply to build Johan Sverdrup accommodation module

Apply Leirvik has signed a contract for an EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction) delivery of the Johan Sverdrup Accommodation module. With a value of around NOK 2 billion, this is the company’s largest contract ever.

The Accommodation module is part of the Johan Sverdrup Utility and Living Quarter (ULQ) platform, to be built for Statoil by the K2JV (Kvaerner & KBR) joint venture.  Apply’s contract with K2JV includes delivery of a new seven-floor Accommodation (LQ) module with an area of 14500 m2, a capacity of 560 beds, recreation areas, changing rooms, helicopter deck, helicopter hangar and other facilities required for operation of an offshore hotel. The accommodation module will be a hybrid construction with level 1-2 built in steel and levels 3-7 built in aluminium. Level 1 and 2 will be fabricated by Kvaerner and KBR as an integrated part of the utility module, and outfitted by Apply. The Accommodation module will be assembled by Apply at Kvaerner’s facilities at Stord. Engineering work will commence immediately and the delivery will be in Q2 2018. The execution of the work will be a joint effort of Apply Leirvik (Stord, Norway) and its sister companies Apply Emtunga (Sweden) and Aluminium Offshore (Singapore).

We are honoured that K2JV and Statoil have selected Apply for delivery of the Johan Sverdrup accommodation module. We are proud to be part of the Johan Sverdrup field development, we are proud to have been awarded our largest ever contract and we are proud that our client have appreciated the advantages of an aluminium construction. That being said we are humble to the task ahead, says Apply Leirvik CEO Lars Solberg.

Apply LQ and HD is at present also engaged in the delivery of the Living Quarters to the Hebron field development in Canada; the Martin Linge, Ivar Aasen and Gina Krog platforms on the NCS; Oseberg C LQ extension module; and other projects in the UK sector, Caspian Sea and Gulf of Mexico.
