The growth in renewable energy, and the continued strong demand for oil and gas, means that Aker Solutions will have to take on 2,000 new employees – 600 of them in Norway.

On Tuesday, the oil services company presented a strong quarterly result for the fourth quarter of 2021 and adjusted revenue estimates for 2022.

Aker Solutions, with Kjell Inge Røkke as its major owner, started working to become an oil and renewable services company a year and a half ago, the newspaper Dagens Næringsliv writes.

The company states that there is strong growth in activity in the renewable sector. Thus, it needs to take on 2,000 new employees, including engineers, economists, and skilled workers, during the year. A total of 600 of them will be recruited in Norway.

Creating jobs

“We create jobs, and these are jobs that really point into the future. The shift towards renewables creates a need for new expertise,” CEO Kjetel Digre told the newspaper.

At the beginning of last year, it was expected that Aker Solutions would struggle financially, but the company secured several large contracts, and operating losses were turned into profits. Aker Solutions now expects a record high order intake in 2022, primarily driven by an upswing in oil and gas, according to DN.
