- Gearing up for modification projects on the shelf

Beerenberg and Norsafe expand their existing frame agreement with services for Mobile Cutting/Machining and Sveisolat® (habitat). - The expanded agreement makes us unique for future projects, says Greger Løvås, Business Manager Norsafe.

In connection with Norsafes deliveries of lifeboat systems in the Norwegian and international market, Beerenberg have been awarded an expanded scope of services under the existing frame agreement, which was signed in November 2011.

Extensive cooperation
Services provided by Beerenberg will now, in addition to Rope Access Technique (RAT), include Beerenbergs special developed disciplines within Mobile Cutting/Machining and Sveisolat® (habitat), for work related to installation, maintenance and modification of lifeboat systems. For Norsafe it is important that Beerenberg has been able to offer an integrated package of services, so that projects can be performed in a safe, efficient and effective manner.

- There are major modifications to be carried out on the lifeboat systems on the shelf in the coming years. Therefore it is important that we as a supplier is properly prepared for the challenges that potentially are going to face us, not to mention that we are able to offer our clients a sense of security when it comes to the total supply of new systems and the decommissioning of existing equipment. An extension of the cooperation with Beerenberg gives us unique opportunities and knowledge to enable us finding solutions to the challenges inherent in the market. There are already several large international projects coming up that will be conducted in cooperation with Beerenberg during the next few months, and the experiences that we will gain from these projects will enables us to form a solid fundament for the work to be performed on the Norwegian shelf, says Greger Løvås Business Manager, Norsafe.
