Oil services firm Aibel announced a fresh round of layoffs on Monday, sacking engineers, purchasing managers and other leading staff at several of its facilities around the country. Pointing to continued weakness in the offshore sector, Aibel said 290 empoyees will have to go.
The layoffs announced on Monday follow three downsizing rounds earlier this year, reducing Aibel’s workforce by about 700 people.
“We’re adjusting the number of emplyees to the amount of orders we actually jave, Aibel spokesperson Bjørg Sandal told broadcaster NRK.
The cuts follow similar moves by other industry players, including Statoil which recently said it would lay off almost 1900 employees.
