Aker Solutions will deliver 20 subsea manifolds and 65 vertical subsea wellsets. The order also includes associated controls as well as work-over and tie-in systems. The first deliveries are scheduled for the second quarter of 2015.
"This is a landmark contract and further strengthens an important relationship with a key partner," said Øyvind Eriksen, executive chairman of Aker Solutions. "It's a significant commercial achievement for our subsea business as well as an important strategic development in our expansion in Angola and the broader region."
Kaombo, one of the world's largest subsea developments, is located in block 32 about 150 kilometers off the coast of Angola.

"I am delighted to be part of this significant project with Aker Solutions for Total," said Prodiaman's president Pedro Godinho.
