Harding has won a contract to deliver lifeboats and davits to Maersk’s Culzean project in the North Sea.
The win is one of a number of recent successes for the company after it struck an agreement to deliver lifeboats and davits to the Heerema heavy lift semisubmersible crane Sleipnir and to Johan Sverdrup.
Culzean is one of the largest gas discoveries in recent years in the UK North Sea.
The field centre will comprise a 12-slot wellhead platform linked by bridges to a central processing facility supported by an FPSO (floating, storage and offloading vessel) and an installation for utilities and living quarters.
Harding will deliver three FF1200 lifeboats to the living quarters and one FF1200 to the wellhead platform, both with davits, which are scheduled for delivery by March next year.
The lifeboats will follow in December next year.
Bjørn Sturle Hillestad, Harding’s global sales and marketing director, said: “We have worked hard to strengthen our position in today’s difficult offshore market.
“Winning the Culzean project was a key strategic goal in this process.”
In August last year Maersk Oil said it would invest $4.5billion in its high pressure, high temperature Culzean field.
The cash commitment secures Culzean’s future through 2032, supports 6,000 UK jobs and creates more than 400 direct jobs.
