Eureka Pumps AS has recently been awarded a contract for upgrading the cargo pumps on the storage vessel Njord Bravo, from Njord Future project.
The project is part of a framework agreement between Statoil and Eureka Pumps AS, and has an estimated value of approx. NOK 20 million.
Main activities include support during retrieval of the pumps onboard Njord Bravo, as well as disassembly, control/upgrade and testing of the pumps, to give them another 20 years of operation.
The pumps were delivered by Eureka back in 1996, and has been operating for 17 years without the need for retrieval/maintenance.
The work will start early September 2017, and will last throughout 2018.
The service and upgrade of the pumps will be executed at Eureka Pumps AS’s workshop in Kristiansund. This contract, together with other ongoing work, will ensure a good foundation for operations in Kristiansund. Eureka see a general increasing activity level. String test of the full length pumps will take place at Eureka Pumps’ modern facilities at Sørumsand. The project is organized by project management from Eureka Pumps Fornebu.
This declaration of trust from Statoil, and acknowledging Eureka’s expertise in pump service, says Eureka’s Director for After Sales Support Øystein Solberg.
The workshop in Kristiansund is constantly executing more and more complex projects, both nationally and internationally.
