Elkem and AFRY have signed a frame agreement to provide engineering and consulting services for Elkem’s production plants globally. The global frame agreement is a continuation of previous local frame agreements. The agreement covers engineering and consulting services such as project management, multi-disciplinary engineering, risk assessments, process optimisation, inspections, digitalisation, construction management and delivery of complete electrical, control and automation systems.
Elkem is one of the world's leading companies within environmentally responsible production of metals and advanced material solutions. The increasing demand for low-carbon technologies and products such as solar panels, batteries and electrical vehicles will increase demand for several of Elkem’s product segment within silicones, silicon products and carbon solutions. The company is simultaneously engaging actively to reduce the environmental impact from their own production processes.
“We are proud to continue supporting Elkem with their environmentally responsible production in multiple engineering and consulting areas under this global frame agreement. The potentiality for international collaboration is extensive and we have already expanded our co-operation in a number of disciplines,” says Jon Julsen, Head of Process Industries Norway in AFRY.
Elkem has a world-wide presence with 30 production plants across the globe, making a good match with AFRY’s global presence.
