It is our pleasure to announce that Kuehne + Nagel has been awarded a new frame agreement with Statoil for provision of Freight Forwarding Services for the Johan Castberg FPSO field development. The scope of deliveries is mainly on the Topside area of the FPSO with selective additional CPI deliveries to the Hull and Turret fabricators.
The scope includes transportation of equipment from a number of suppliers to the relevant construction sites, geographically dispersed. A soft start of operations is already underway, and peak of execution phase in 2019. Kuehne + Nagel will operate the contract from its Norwegian Project SCM team in close collaboration with colleagues in other involved branches and countries.
We are proud that Statoil has awarded us the responsibility in undertaking a key role in this project. This award is an important recognition of our capabilities and the services provided for comparable projects we have executed in the past such as the Johan Sverdrup project. Statoil has emphasized that the previous experience and quality in execution as well as our technical and commercial content for the tender in total pointed the award in our direction.
