Statoil’s next offshore newbuilding project—the Gudrun platform—will be installed west of Stavanger, close to the UK border. Newbuilding contract for coating the platform topside was signed with Aibel in the beginning of February 2011. Topside will be built at Aibel’s yards in Thailand (60 percent), Poland (20 percent) and in Norway (20 percent). Jotun’s fully pre-quailfied Norsok system number one will be applied. In addition, earlier last year, another contract was signed for supplying coatings for the jacket, which is currently under construction at Aker Solutions yard in Verdal, Norway. The jacket splash zones will be protected with Baltoflake and Marathon, while the submersed part of the jacket will be protected with Jotacote Universal.
