The Sembcorp Marine-built, semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV) entered into service in July 2018 and is part of Heerema Marine Contractor’s fleet.
Sleipnir, which has dual-fuel engines running on marine gas oil and LNG, has two revolving cranes capable of lifting up to 20,000 tonnes in tandem.
For the Leviathan development, the SSCV installed its two main in less than 20 hours. The vessel was selected for the job in order to save budget as the installation process takes less offshore time.
“Sleipnir is a unique vessel. It is LNG-powered and thus climate friendly. And our client enjoys the benefits. Because lifting larger modules means less time involved and therefore a smaller budget will suffice for a job,” said Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, ceo of Heerema.
Sleipnir is deployed globally for installing and removing jackets, topsides, deepwater foundations, moorings and other offshore structures.
