Lloyd’s Register and Aker Solutions will collaborate under a new global framework agreement to drive efficiency in engineering and subsea oil and gas developments.
Lead Group Category Manager, Gaute Fardal from Aker Solutions, said: “We are pleased to have Lloyd’s Register on board as a new Group Frame Agreement supplier to Aker Solutions. Our expectations to the agreement are highly competitive priced services and further enhanced efficiency in our processes and product solutions.”
The contract gives Aker Solutions access to all Lloyd’s Register relevant services, including inspection, compliance, certification and advisory/consulting services in areas like risk management/HSEQ, engineering dynamics, asset integrity, drilling, wells and reservoirs.
Inge Alme, Sales Director at Lloyd’s Register said: “Aker Solutions’ efforts in efficiency stewardship are testament to their commercial and environmental commitment. They are demonstrating yet again that their efficiency programmes are designed and implemented with high accuracy, completeness and transparency.”
Lloyd’s Register informed that the first call off from the contract is already in place: a project for international quality management system standard ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 (environmental) certification of Aker Solution’s Subsea division. The project will be carried out by LRQA.
“Of special interest is our process for technology qualifications,” said Alme. “This is an important area for a company like Aker Solutions, where new innovations in areas like subsea processing can be critical for tomorrow’s leading oil and gas operators.”
The framework agreement is valid for 3 years with options for extension for a further 2 years.
