Glamox awarded LED lighting contract for Statoil – Johan Castberg FPSO
Glamox is pleased to announce that Glamox AS has signed a framework agreement to supply the LED lighting package for the Johan Castberg FPSO (floating production storage and offloading unit).
Statoil expects that the Johan Castberg field will be producing for more than 30 years, and the major project spin-offs will be created in the long-lasting production phase. Providing a final investment decision, Johan Castberg will trigger much activity for suppliers in North Norway and have ripple effects throughout Norway, both in the development phase and the operating phase. In a normal year of operation the Johan Castberg field will generate 1200 man-years in Norway, of which 300 are expected to be in North Norway.
Glamox will supply the complete LED lighting package, including luminaires and floodlights for hazardous areas as well as safe areas. In addition, Glamox will supply a variety of lighting products for the accommodation area. Choice of LED technology provides significant operational benefits for Statoil and their partners, such as limited maintenance work, long lifetime and energy efficient solutions, reduced operational costs and improved environmental performance. Investment and operational analysis shows that a new LED lighting installation reduces carbon emissions and maintenance work significantly.
Mr Rune Marthinussen, CEO of Glamox AS commented: “LED lighting solutions represent the future for lighting systems. Based on our long marine – and offshore experience, we have developed high quality LED lighting solutions suited for challenging environments. We are proud to be selected by Statoil to supply the lighting package for such an important project.”
