This week, Heerema’s latest vessel Sleipnir will start her maiden voyage. Sleipnir, the world’s largest and strongest semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV) was in-built Singapore and can set course for Spain. The journey will take about 45 days.
Sleipnir is designed to work on giant offshore tasks resembling putting in and eradicating jackets, topsides, deep-water foundations, moorings and different offshore buildings, resembling windmills. This distinctive vessel is the most important crane vessel but constructed. It has the strongest pair of revolving cranes and in addition is the world’s first crane vessel with dual-fuel engines working on MGO and LNG, dramatically decreasing dangerous emissions.
The final two days bunkering of LNG happened 12 miles off the coast of Indonesia. Since LNG is just not but obtainable worldwide, Heerema is the primary to carry out an LNG bunkering on this space of the world. Heerema has chosen Dutch firm Titan LNG to assist on this endeavor. Titan LNG has chartered a ship commercially managed by Anthony Veder, additionally Dutch, thus leading to a novel Dutch cooperation.
Koos-Jan van Brouwershaven, CEO Heerema: “Not solely is Sleipnir the world’s largest and strongest vessel, additionally it is first of its form so far as sustainability goes.

Sustainability is an integral a part of HMC’s identification, embedded in our every day work practices. But we intend to do excess of that. Sleipnirs’ design clearly showcases Heerema’s dedication to sustainability past merely compliance. It exhibits that we act sustainable as a result of we wish to. Not as a result of we’ve got to. This particular undertaking of bunkering LNG is proof of this ambition. We are very happy to work along with Dutch Company Titan LNG, because it supplied us with good options for bunkering, in Singapore in addition to in Spain. The involvement of a second Dutch firm, Anthony Veder, makes this maiden voyage additional particular”.
I’d prefer to thank Pavilion Gas and SLNG for the assist in Singapore and Anthony Veder, our delivery companions, that accomplished this Dutch-Singaporean undertaking. Titan LNG seems ahead to supplying Heerema with extra LNG sooner or later to fulfil our mission of decreasing dangerous emissions of the marine and industrial sector.”
