Aker Solutions announced Friday that its Aker Oilfield Services subsidiary has won a contract to provide subsea construction services offshore Brazil. The customer, who was not named by Aker, will use Aker's subsea construction vessel Aker Wayfarer for a 230-day period.
Aker estimates that the start-up of operations will most likely take place in May/June this year, with mobilization and de-mobilization taking place in the UK. This is the second time the Aker Wayfarer has been to Brazil, where it completed a year-long campaign during 2011 and early 2012.
Karl Erik Kjelstad, president of Aker Oilfield Services, commented in a company statement:
"To secure another long-term campaign offshore Brazil is a compliment to the capabilities of Aker Wayfarer and her crew. This is an important contract for us in a rapidly growing oil and gas region."
Aker describes its Aker Wayfarer ship as an ultramodern 515-foot long offshore construction vessel capable of operating in water depths up to 9,843 feet.
