The duration of the Frame Agreement is initially for three years, with the option of two additional periods of two years each. “The establishment of these Frame Agreements with selected Platform Supply Vessels suppliers, is the first step towards a strategic partnership with the potential to evolve into a future alliance concept”, says Per Harald Kongelf, SVP Improvements, Aker BP ASA. Aker BP will work closely with the selected suppliers to develop commercial compensation models, based upon performance driven KPIs. The goal is to secure Aker BP’s need for safe and reliable transportation of cargo to the offshore facilities. “Eidesvik is very pleased to be among the three PSV suppliers selected by Aker BP to take a lead role in the further development of safe and upgraded solutions for future PSV-services”, says Jan Fredrik Meling, CEO of Eidesvik Offshore ASA.
