Jotun Coatings For All Statoil Platforms
Under an agreement with Statoil, Jotun Protective Coatings A/S, Norway, is supplying protective coatings and technical services for all three Gullfaks and Veslefrikk offshore platforms. The value of the two-year contract is over $ 1,553,000 (10 million Norwegian kroner) and this agreement makes the Jotun group the principle supplier of coatings and services to all Statoil installations in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea field.
In addition, Jotun and Statoil have signed a contract, valued at a further $1,863,600 (12 million Norwegian kroner), to develop a wider range of environmentally friendly products over the next 3 years. This contract will enable Jotun to supply Statoil with all their requirements over the contract period, stated Per Berg, divisional director at Jotun Protective Coatings.
The new research and development contract follows an earlier program relating to maintenance coatings that was carried out in 1991.
As a result of that program, Statoil and Jotun have developed a model solution for the problem of pretreatments and maintenance coatings in the offshore environment.
