Aker Solutions, a global supplier of subsea production equipment and offshore field design services to the oil and gas industry, recently opened the new headquarters for the MMO (Maintenance, Modifications and Operations) division in Stavanger. This new home for 2,600 employees is located adjacent to the North Sea, with eight above-ground office floors and two below-ground floors for a parking garage (65,000 m2 / 700,000 square feet) with space for 500 cars and 1,000 bicycles.
PENETRON ADMIX was used for the extensive below-ground structures to protect against groundwater and seawater. About 11,000 m3 (14,390 cubic yards) of concrete were treated with PENETRON ADMIX, including the building’s foundation and basement structures, which are exposed to the water table and chloride penetration from the seawater.
