Semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir picked up the 740 ton Nova topside module from a barge at Amøyfjorden outdoors Stavanger, Norway. From right here, Sleipnir safely transported the module to the Neptune Energy operated Gjøa platform within the Norwegian North Sea and accomplished the set up inside three hours. The Nova module will probably be used for the tie-back of the Wintershall Dea operated Nova subject, situated about 120 kilometers northwest of Bergen, with a water depth of 370 meters. Despite the tough scenario we’re experiencing, Heerema accomplished the set up on time and safely.
The profitable and protected set up completes round two years of a detailed partnership between our shopper Neptune Energy and their fabricator Rosenberg. Heerema’s Project Manager Roland Jansens famous that ‘there was mutual belief and a drive to search out options for the challenges we confronted.’
This mission once more highlighted the significance of Heerema’s Simulation Center throughout mission preparations. The Simulation Center demonstrated to Neptune Energy that Heerema may full the mission consistent with their expectations. While for Heerema’s offshore staff, it gives the chance to coach for complicated lifts and initiatives. Using our Simulation Center, Heerema’s crew familiarize themselves with upcoming work, each minimizing danger and making a plan that we replicate on the mission location. It is the perfect instance of ‘planning the work and dealing the plan.’
During these difficult instances, we’re offered with distinctive difficulties that we overcome with equally distinctive options. As Heerema’s Leiden Office implements social distancing measures, the ultimate simulation for the mission was held with solely offshore crew current within the Center with the mission staff becoming a member of in just about over Skype, demonstrating that the Simulation Center can proceed to indicate purchasers simulations of their deliberate work and promote security remotely.
Sleipnir has a variety of sustainability measures, together with dual-fuel performance permitting the vessel to run on LNG, a cleaner gasoline than customary MGO. During the Nova set up, the vessel ran on LNG, lowering carbon emissions and our impression on the planet.
Managing Director of Neptune Energy in Norway, Odin Estensen, stated: ‘This spectacular heavy-lift marks the start of a brand new period for the Gjøa-platform.’ Heerema is proud to ship a protected, profitable, and well timed mission execution for our purchasers to help their ambitions and improvement.
Sleipnir has been busy in Norwegian waters, and with one other profitable and protected set up accomplished, the vessel strikes on to a decommissioning mission in an energetic summer season marketing campaign.”
