Record Contract For Norwegian Group

11.Dec 2020

Multi-discipline company Norwegian Group from Volda has signed a record contract with drilling company Dolphin Drilling. This is a significant agreement for Norwegian Group. The job of expanding the workforce now begins.

The contract runs for three years and Norwegian Group will deliver services in rope access, scaffolding, NDT, painting and insulation to three of Dolphin Drilling’s rigs, Borgland Dolphin, Bredford Dolphin and Bideford Dolphin. Norwegian Group’s goal is to extend the agreement to include the remaining eight rigs Dolphin Drilling has around the world. Norwegian Group was competing with eight other companies to win the contract.

“This is proof that our strategy to become an integrated services supplier within the multi-discipline market has succeeded. Our work has been orientated towards reaching such a position as this. This will demand more from our organization, both in terms of project management and actual implementation of the project”, explains Kay-Ove Johansen, Norwegian Group’s main shareholder.

The largest individual contract, more employees
The contract is significant for the Volda company, and if NOG is awarded the contract for the 8 other rigs, there is talk of even larger figures. This is the largest single contract Norwegian Group has signed.

“The agreement means we will need to step up recruitment in the coming months. We must appoint several people, both within operational departments and locally in administration. We will therefore start work immediately to increase manpower”, informs Johansen.

Cato Erikstad Gundersen, Procurement and Logistics Manager in Dolphin Drilling, explains that there were several reasons for choosing the Volda company:

“We see Norwegian Group as flexible, which is important for us in relation to challenges in bed capacity on the rigs. Of course it is also crucial that they deliver good services and have good references”, says Gundersen.

Norwegian Group has chosen NSE Gruppen as the supplier with the expertise to undertake the specialist services that will be subcontracted.
