Bjorge Garners Gjoa Contract from Aker Kvaerner

Aker Kværner Stord AS and Bjorge AS have signed a Letter of Intent related to the Gjoa Semi EPCH project. The contract will cover deliveries of diesel-powered emergency generators and carries a value of approx. 50 million NOK.

The equipment, to be delivered by Bjorge in 2008, includes an Emergency Generator with an output of 1.6 MW and an Essential Generator with 5.2 MW output.

According to Head of Division Johan Fredriksson, the contract consolidates Bjorge's venture within a product area that is new to the company.

"We have recently doubled the workforce in our division and have signed new contracts with European manufacturers of this kind of equipment," said Fredriksson. "The award of this contract was therefore strategically important."
