The frame agreement encompasses feasibility and conceptual studies, FEED, detailed engineering and related follow-on and support for R&D activities, as well as assistance to Equinor for its upcoming projects, including new energy-related projects in the onshore, offshore and floating wind sectors.
The scope of the agreement extends, but is not limited, to offshore trunklines including landfalls and flowlines, onshore pipelines, components, subsea structures, field layout and routing design for products such as umbilicals, cables, static flexibles and power cables.
In October 2019 Saipem signed a subsea service contract with Equinor, which entails the use of Saipem’s underwater intervention drone (UID) Hydrone-R and the all-electric Work Class ROV Hydrone-W in the Njord Field development.
Francesco Racheli Coo E&C Offshore Division commented: “This new agreement with Equinor, a leading player in the energy industry, consolidates a long and successful relationship and co-operation. Our ability in providing research and technology solutions to a company committed to long-term value creation testifies our leadership and reliability in the sector. In particular, our solutions in the renewable energy sector will allow us to accompany Equinor on its energy transition journey, supporting them with our technologies and highly qualified expertise.”
