"We are honoured to have entered this master order with Chevron and to have been awarded the Anchor work order," said Luis Araujo, CEO of Aker Solutions. "This demonstrates the mutual trust between the two organisations, as well as the capabilities and experience of our umbilicals manufacturing organisation in the US."
