Aker BP awards procurement and construction contract for the Munin Jacket

Peter Kupka, Project Director for fixed facilities deliveries in Yggdrasil, said: “This is an important contract for the Yggdrasil development. With this award we have placed all major fixed facilities contracts in the Yggdrasil area, and we are in line with our execution plan.”

Kupka continued: “Heerema Fabrication Group Vlissingen is an experienced international contractor with a solid track record. I am very pleased that they will contribute to Yggdrasil and look forward to starting the execution phase for the Munin jacket.”

The jacket contract was signed on 23 May.

Delivery in 2025

Munin is an unmanned production platform in the northern part of the Yggdrasil area in the North Sea. Aibel is delivering the topsides.

Aker Solutions will do the detailed engineering of the jacket. The jacket will be fabricated at the Heerema yard in Vlissingen in the Netherlands. Jacket procurement will start in the autumn, and construction is set to start in the beginning of 2024.

The Munin jacket weighs 5.8 t. The height is 130 m, and it will be installed in a water depth of 105 m. Eight piles of 60 m will be used to secure the jacket to the seabed. Installation is planned in 2025, and Aker BP has secured lifting capacity for all the installations in the Yggdrasil area.

Peter Kupka commented: “We have now secured the execution plan for the Munin jacket from start of engineering to installation. Heerema will also be responsible for the installation of the jacket performed under a separate contract between Aker BP and Heerema marine contractors.? Well done to all involved.”
