Subsea equipment contract for Amerada Hess

This current order launches the new supply chain model announced by KOP during December of last year. The model includes the manufacture of subsea trees in Tranby, Norway; controls systems in Aberdeen, Scotland; with SIT testing taking place at the new Industrial Complex in Mobile, Alabama. The new approach enables KOP to deliver subsea systems with a shorter lead-time, and at more competitive pricing than previously possible.
