Contract for Melkøya buildings
A contract worth roughly NOK 180 million to put up the buildings at Melkøya near Hammerfest has been awarded by Statoil to Moelven Byggmodul. The buildings will be erected in connection with the Snøhvit development in the Barents Sea.
Placed on behalf of the partners in the Snøhvit licence, the deal covers accommodation modules, a canteen, service centre, recreation centre and security and garage buildings.
These will be temporary buildings, which will be removed and sold on completion of the project, reports Morten Vinje, project manager for construction of the buildings on Melkøya.
Construction work will be able to start on 1 February next year. The first part of the workers' camp is due to be ready on 1 April 2003, and the camp should be completed during the summer.
