Aker Solutions signs Draugen electrification contract
Following the Letter of Intent announced on December 15, 2022, Aker Solutions confirms it has now signed the contract for the Draugen project with OKEA, according to the company’s release.
Reference is made to the stock exchange announcement on December 15, 2022, regarding the LOI with OKEA for the Draugen Electrification project.
OKEA has selected Aker Solutions as the main contractor for Engineering, Procurement, Construction, and Installation (EPCI).
