Heerema Awarded First Contracts for its new Crane Vessel Sleipnir
The first contract is from Noble Energy Mediterranean, Ltd. for transportation and installation services associated with the Leviathan Production Platform in the Mediterranean Sea, while the second transport and installation contract has been awarded by Maersk Oil for the new production and living quarters platforms as part of their Tyra Future project.

These awards mark Heerema’s first contracts for its new semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir; due to come into service early 2019. Sleipnir will be equipped with two 10,000 MT cranes and is currently under construction at Sembcorp Marine in Singapore.

The awards are also a confirmation that the industry welcomes a lifting capacity that provides the opportunity to install larger integrated structures in a single lift without compromising the flexibility and robustness of traditional installation methodologies. In these cases, Sleipnir will be performing multiple ultra-heavy lifts, some of which will be in excess of 15,000 MT. The ability to install larger modules than currently possible, with existing equipment, allows both customers to minimize offshore hookup and commissioning activities.

As part of these contracts, Heerema will furthermore utilize several of its own barges for the transportation of the various platform components, such as its H-591 being used for the launch of a 15,000 MT jacket, thus exemplifying the benefit of Heerema’s distinctive asset base and ability to offer complete platform transportation and installation solutions.

“It is encouraging to see that in the current market conditions, there are still clients that truly value, and continue to invest in, strategic relationships with the contractor community. The award of these projects, while the Sleipnir is still nearly two years from completion is a tribute to the longstanding relationship between Heerema and Noble and Maersk Oil respectively, and we appreciate their trust in Heerema’s track record”, says CCO Harke Jan Meek.
