Axess Technologies wins riser replacement contract with Equinor for platforms in the North Sea

MOLDE, Norway, October 10, 2023 – Axess Technologies has secured a riser replacement contract with Equinor, an international energy company.

The contract includes replacing 3 multi-purpose risers using Equinor’s linear winch on Visund, and replacing a water injection riser on Snorre A. Both platforms are located in the North Sea.

Riser replacements are crucial for maintaining the safety of offshore operations, protecting the environment, ensuring regulatory compliance, enhancing operational efficiency, and managing risk.

Planning work commenced in Q3 2023 at Axess Technologies’ headquarters in Molde. Offshore operations are planned to take place in 2024. Multi-skilled personnel will be deployed to reduce the number of mobilisations, hence greenhouse gas emissions.

Jan Owe Stenløs, Director – Solutions at Axess Technologies, said, “Axess Group has a long working relationship with Equinor in both oil & gas and wind energy. This is the third year in a row that Equinor has selected us as the topside contractor for riser replacements on their assets in the North Sea. We are thankful for the continued trust in us and we are committed to delivering excellence and contributing to their continued success.”
