ZWIJNDRECHT, The Netherlands --Heerema Zwijndrecht looks set to win the $155 million contract for the main deck for BP Norge's Valhall re-development project in the North Sea.
The scope � subject to final clarification � covers fabrication, integration, mechanical completion, commissioning assistance, and load-out of the topsides deck. There is also an option for Heerema to fabricate the 500 metric tonne (551 ton) solids handling module.
The work should generate around 1.3 million man-hours for the Zwijndrecht yard. The completed deck will weigh 11,000 metric tonnes (12,125 tons), and the flare boom around 350 metric tonnes (385 tons).
The purpose of the re-development is to replace existing installations with a new combined living quarter/process platform, powered directly from Lista in Norway via a 292 km (181 mi) power cable.
