Heerena's Sleipnir, the world’s largest and strongest semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV), up for Maiden Trip

World's Most Sustainable Crane Vessel Sleipnir, built by Sembcorp Marine in Singapore is finally ready to set sails for Spain.

Heerema Marine Contractors ("HMC" or "Company") newest vessel Sleipnir begin its maiden voyage this week, which will take about 45 days.

Sleipnir is designed to work on large offshore projects such as installing and removing jackets, topsides, deep-water foundations, moorings and other offshore structures, such as windmills.  

Heerema said, this unique vessel is the largest crane vessel yet built. It has the strongest pair of revolving cranes and also is the world’s first crane vessel with dual-fuel engines running on MGO and LNG, dramatically reducing harmful emissions.

Titan LNG undertake the LNG bunkering, which takes two days and took place approximately 12 miles off the coast of Indonesia.
