Photo of the Week: Sleipnir in action
Each week, Project Cargo Journal will be sharing one photograph, showcasing industry activity. This week’s photograph is courtesy of Heerema Marine Contractors.
This week’s photograph is an areal shot, taken from the top of the Sleipnir’s crane. Heerema Marine Contractors’ semi-submersible crane vessel, the Sleipnir, has a max lift capacity of 20,00 metric tonnes, as it has two cranes of 10,000 metric tonnes lifting capacity each. The vessel, which measures 220 metres in length and 102 metres in width, is also the world’s most sustainable semi-submersible crane vessel.
The vessel has broken several lift records since 2019. Notably, the Sleipnir broke the world-lifting record with the Leviathan topside 15,300 metric ton lift in September 2019, and again in October 2022, when the vessel installed a 17,000 metric tonne Thermoelectric generator (TEG) Module for the Tyra II gas field.
