PRESS RELEASE: Equinor Energy AS Enters Into Framework Agreement With IK-Norway AS for Live System Isolation Services


STAVANGER, Norway. – Equinor Energy AS has entered into a framework agreement with IK-Norway AS for 2 years with an option to extend by a further 4 years. The framework allows IK-Norway to provide AOGV live system isolation technology and services to Equinor.

The technology makes it possible to:
• Increase uptime by moving scope out of Turnaround
• Isolate individual process trains, valves, heat exchangers or other parts of the process
• Increased up-time by reducing drainage, venting, purging & flushing

The AOGV live system isolation technology has been developed over the past 3 years and Equinor has been involved from the very beginning. Equinor has been a key player and support partner during the development and proving phases of the technology.

IK-Norway’s Business Development and Sales Manager, Kenneth Låtveit, said “We are very happy for the opportunity this agreement gives IK in pushing the technology envelope even further. We are excited and look forward to working with Equinor as the relationship progresses.”
