ODIM in Norway has been awarded a contract worth NKr 16.5 million to supply an automated hose-handling system for a PSV building at Aker Brevik.

The vessel is under construction for Norwegian shipowner Farstad, and the builder has also secured an option from ODIM for another unit of the same kind.

The contract covers an automated bulkhose connection system (ABCS) for secure delivery of liquids and other cargo from supply ships to drilling rigs. Delivery is due in late January 2007.

“This represents a commercial breakthrough for ODIM technology which has previously undergone successful testing on both Oseberg and Troll in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea,” said ODIM's Managing Director Jogeir Romestrand.

“In our view, this system – which has also been through a full-scale tests at our Hjørungavåg plant in western Norway – will set a new standard for safe deck working. We also believe the technology has a substantial potential,” he said.

The ABCS was developed in cooperation with Hydro and Innovation Norway.
