Following several years of extensive upgrades, the drilling and production platform Njord A is ready for handover to Equinor. Towing it back to the field has started on 22 March 2022. Njord A has been described as Norway's largest renovation project. After the contract was signed on March 17, 2017, significant upgrades have been carried out on the hull and the platform deck to extend its lifetime for another 20 years of production.The upgrade of Njord A has been a project with very high local content in Norway. The engineering was performed mainly by Aker Solutions' offices in Bergen, Stavanger, Fornebu and Trondheim. The construction has been carried out at the company’s yards at Stord and Verdal. Close to 400 different supplier companies have been involved in the project, most of them Norwegian.Njord A was originally delivered by Aker Solutions in September 1997. The platform deck was manufactured and assembled at the Stord yard, while the hull was constructed at the Verdal yard. Njord A was the first EPC contract on the Norwegian continental shelf following the implementation of the NORSOK standard in the mid-90s.
