Kvaerner’s unique experience in floating platforms enables us to offer our customers the solution which will best solve the specific project requirements.

Kvaerner can offer facilities that are very well suited for topsides integration as well as hook-up, commissioning, completion and also pit-stop activities of floating production systems.
