Norway's Aker Solutions has won a contract to deliver 250 km of steel-tube umbilicals for an unnamed subsea project.

The contract will see Aker deliver the steel-tube umbilicals linking a subsea development to an existing offshore platform.

"We are honoured to have been selected to work on this project, which is groundbreaking in terms of the size and technology of the umbilicals system," said Luis Araujo, chief executive officer of Aker Solutions.

The work will be led by Aker Solutions in Oslo and manufacturing will take place at the company's umbilicals plant in Moss, Norway. Delivery is set for the end of 2018.

Umbilical systems are full service connections used to transport data, power and liquids between oil and gas installations on the seafloor to onshore facilities or platforms.
