Alsthom Unit Strengthens Position In Norwegian Offshore Market

Alsthom's ACB unit in Nantes, France, has decided to create a subsidiary in Norway, called ACB Norge A/S, to develop business in the Norwegian offshore market.

ACB thus intends to concentrate efforts in Norway on activities for which it already has significant involvement, including Skuld technology (Elf Aquitaine license), subsea control systems, and power swivels for oil drilling.

Efforts made to implement closer cooperation and technology transfers with Norwegian industrial firms recently led to the signing of several agreements, with Kongsberg Vaaperfabrikk for Skuld technology and with Liaaen Helitron for subsea control systems. ACB also established contact in 1984 with the Norwegian firm Temco Engineering to cooperate on the sale of drilling rig equipment.

In the future, ACB intends to pursue R&D and to work with Norwegian partners toward development of products aimed at the world oil market.
