Heerema’s Sleipnir takes Tyra West modules onboard
Heerema Marine Contractors’ LNG-fuelled semi-submersible crane behemoth Sleipnir has taken onboard the Tyra West modules. After setting sail towards the Netherlands in early January, the heavy transport vessel Bigroll Beaufort has completed its journey last week.
The sailaway of the Tyra West modules and bridges from Sembcorp Marine Admiralty Yard in January marked the second and final phase of the Sembcorp Marine’s project undertaking for TotalEnergies and DUC’s Tyra redevelopment project.
The Tyra Redevelopment project is lead by TotalEnergies in partnership with Noreco and Nordsøfonden.The major is investing over $300 million to redevelop the Tyra platforms as Denmark and Europe take course towards a future with low-carbon energy.
Facing delays due to the outbreak of the corona virus pandemic, the redeveloped Tyra is expected to start production in 2023.
Once completed it will deliver approximately 60,000 barrels of oil equivalent (boe) per day, equating to over 200 million boe over the next 25 years.
