SKID DELIVERY TO MONGSTAD
Tratec Halvorsen has delivered a 15 tonnes skid to Aker Solutions. It will be installed at Equinor's oil refinery in Mongstad.
- This is a relatively complex order. We have had 6-8 men full-time at work since this summer, says John Vester Nielsen, who is head of manufacturing at Tratec Halvorsen.
A ski is a steel frame on which portable equipment is mounted. The installation, which is going to Mongstad, has 14 inch pipe coils and pressure tanks with valves each weighing 1500 kg. It is seven meters long, four meters wide and four meters high.
- We also made handrails, ladders and greating. Before the facility was picked up by boat on January 3, we conducted pressure testing and leak testing, says Nielsen.
The order from Aker Solutions. It's not every year that Tratec Halvorsen receives such an order.
- It's been a while since we last produced a ski, but bet it won't be too long next time, says Nielsen.
