    Renewal of Rånåsfoss power station

    Akershus Energi AS has a large investment program in renewable energy. Akershus Energi has invested in upgrading of hydropower plants, district heating systems with heating plants and solar systems besides fasilsiteter for research on renewable energy.

    For this activity Yardstick delivered services consultancy in the Law on public procurement including supply regulations and use of contract types for different contracts. In addition, Yardstick drawn templates and manual for project implementation.

    Yardstick has also led the implementation of procurement until signed contracts for projects and partly drafted and negotiated framework agreements for operation of the facilities.

  • 2010 The Gjøa field

    The Gjøa field

    Yardstick has now completed its task with the Gjøa Project. In all we delivered over 8000 hours a year to Aker Solutions , and we are proud to say we were a major part of the procurement department in this project. Here is some more information on what we was a part of.

    gja plasseringThe Gjøa field is the first to be developed in the northern part of the North Sea. This has directly influenced the project in terms of spirit and naming. Gjøa is named after the first vessel to transit the North-West Passage. This three year long journey was completed in 1906, and was headed by the Norwegian arctic explorer Roald Amundsen. Amundsen also led the first Antarctic expedition to reach the South Pole between 1910 and 1912, and was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles.

    The Gjøa field is located offshore Norway, north of Bergen, in the northern North Sea. The sea depth in the area is 360 metres. The reservoir depth is about 2 200 metres. The field was discovered in the spring of 1989, using drilling equipment from Aker Solutions on the semisubmersible drilling rig Polar Pioneer.

    Partners in the license are Statoil, GDF Suez E&P Norge, Petoro, Shell and RWE Dea. Statoil is operator for the development phase, while GDF SUEZ E&P Norge will tok over the operatorship at production startup in June 2010.

    The total development of Gjøa and Vega is currently among the largest development projects on the Norwegian continental shelf. The field is being developed using five subsea templates, tied to the semisubmersible production platform. This concept was chosen based on health, environment and safety considerations, previous experience and profitability. The topside is 110m x 85m, at a dry weight of 20 000 tonnes. The process area weight is 7.520 tonnes, the riser area weight is 4.980 tonnes, the utility area weight is 5.990 tonnes, and the living quarters, lifeboats and helideck weight is 1.544 tonnes. The living quarter capacity is 100 cabins. The total displacement of the platform is 59 000 tonnes.

    Design by Aker Solutions
    gja platformAker Solutions was awarded the contract for the front end engineering design on Gjøa in January 2006. “We are very enthused by winning the front-end design work for the Gjøa platform. In the world market for oil & gas contractors, Gjøa was considered a strategically important project for Aker Solutions underpinning their position as a leading supplier of floating production platforms.

    On Sunday, July 11, Statoil switched on the power, making Gjøa Norway’s first floating platform to get electricity from the mainland. This reduces the emission of carbon dioxide (CO2), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The emission of carbon dioxide will be reduced by about a quarter of a million tonnes per year, equivalent to the annual emission from at least 100,000 cars.

  • 2015 New Frigates

    New Frigates

    ​​​​The frigates are equipped to fight in all maritime warfare areas, anti-aircraft, at the surface and under water. From 2015, the frigates will be supplemented with NH90 helicopters. This will make the frigates more flexible, also when it comes to participating in national and international operations. The last of five frigate​s was handed over to the Navy in January 2011. The five frigates are: KNM Fridtjof Nansen, KNM Roald Amundsen, KNM Otto Sverdrup, KNM Helge Ingstad and KNM Thor Heyerdahl.​

    Ekofisk Zulu (2/4 Z)

    The Greater Ekofisk Area is located in the southern part of the North Sea, 300 kilometers southwest of Stavanger. In addition to the Ekofisk field the area consists of the Eldfisk, Embla and Tor fields. The Ekofisk Complex comprises all installations which are connected with bridges on the central Ekofisk field. As of 2014, this includes nine platforms and bridge supports. The newest platforms are the wellhead platform 2/4 Z and the field center and accommodation platform 2/4 L which were installed in 2013.
