The Jotun FPSO redesign project
Ane Mo works in the Balder Future project. A few months back, she got an idea – an idea that soon materialized into a redesign project engaging creative teenagers from Jæren.
Learning about the Balder Future project and the re-use solution for the Jotun FPSO, Ane thought it would be brilliant to re-use as much as possible from the production vessel. The old living quarter proved to be a real treasure. Blinds, pillows, shower curtains and leather chairs – Ane saw opportunities, and turned southwards. To Jæren.
Youth clubs from the four municipalities in the southern Jæren region were presented to the idea of redesigning the old Jotun textiles. No persuasion needed, and the Jotun Redesign Project was born. Monica Cecilie Herredsvela in Ungdomsklubbane Ung i Hå, explains on behalf of the clubs:
“The timing is perfect. We see that young people are increasingly concerned with sustainability, and especially with re-use and redesign to reduce future consumption. The project will not only create positive activities in the clubs, it will also raise awareness on some actual and important topics”.
Made in Jæren
Somewhere between 40-50 youngsters – all with an extra interest in redesign and sewing, have signed up. Over the next few weeks, the four clubs Møllekjellaren, Ungdomsklubbane Ung i Hå, Ungdomskultursenteret Axis and Ungdomshuset Veveriet will run sessions where participants will redesign and give new life to Ane’s curtains. The clubs will return to Vår Energi with products that will be auctioned to employees.
