Aker Solutions has been awarded a contract to provide maintenance and modifications services for three platforms at Petrobras-operated oil and gas fields offshore Brazil.

The four-year contract is valued at about NOK800 million (US$640 million) and includes an option for a one-year extension.

The order covers a range of services to renovate, repair and upgrade the floating production storage and offloading platforms (FPSO) at the Barracuda, Caratinga and Albacora Leste fields in the Campos Basin.

The company will execute the work from its CSE Mecânica e Instrumentação base at Macaé, Rio de Janeiro.

It also entails management at the yard where replacement parts and other equipment will be fabricated.

The work begins in March, with final deliveries scheduled for the first quarter of 2022.
