The PO from Aibel to PARAT Halvorsen for the supply of Electrode boilers to Melkøya was signed 31st of March 2023. This was a great achievement for PARAT after working on the project with Aibel and Equinor for a long period of time.
This delivery consisting of boilers with 70 barg design pressure is a WORLD RECORD with regards to pressure for Electrode Steam Boilers. The boilers shall also be EX-Certified and designed for outdoor installation in a rough environment.
This project is of high importance for all parties involved, and due to the critical function of the boilers in the process on Melkøya, the Client will follow the project closely. PARAT is very proud to be selected, another proof that our electrode boilers are looked upon as the best in the market – stable, reliable, and flexible.
PARAT Halvorsen AS will be supplying six 28MW High-Pressure High Voltage Electrode Steam boilers, together with degassing tank, circulation pumps, feed water pumps and control system. Aibel will install all equipment in one module at their fabrication yard in Thailand, and transport the module to the end destination at Melkøya.
The complexity of the delivery is high:
- The design pressure of the boilers is 70 barg
- The equipment shall be EX certified (ATEX 2G IIB T3)
- Outdoor installation in a rough environment
The boiler package will be delivered from PARAT in December 2024.

Equinor awards contract worth NOK 8 billion to Aibel
Equinor has, on behalf of the Snøhvit partnership, awarded Aibel a major contract for Hammerfest LNG modifications in connection with the Snøhvit Future project. The contract is subject to governmental approval of the project.
Aibel has been awarded an EPCI contract that involves engineering, procurement, construction and installation of two new processing modules related to the onshore compression and electrification of the Melkøya plant. They will also build a new receiving station for power from shore and carry out integration work at the plant.
The development includes a compressor, transformer station and electric steam boilers at Melkøya, grid connection including a transformer station at Hyggevatn, and Statnett's construction of new power capacity to Hammerfest from Skaidi.
