Work on building and outfitting the concrete gravity base structure (GBS) for Statfjord A was completed in the Gands Fjord during the early summer of 1976. Preparations then began to tow the colossus to Digernessundet near Stord further up the coast, where it was to be mated with the topside under construction at Aker’s Stord Verft yard.
