Heerema Marine Contractor’s new state-of-the-art deepwater construction vessel Aegir has left Rotterdam and is now en route to the U.S. Gulf of Mexico.

The news was revealed by Martijn van Wijngaarden last week at the Offshore Energy 2013 Exhibition and Conference. Wijngaarden is a Certification Manager for the Aegir newbuilding project at Heerema Offshore Services.

During the “State of the art vessels for the offshore industry” session, he said that the vessel, on which the company reportedly spent $700 million, had left the Huisman yard in Schiedam after it had had the pipelay equipment installed on board.

Upon arrival in the Gulf of Mexico, Aegir will install risers at a depth of 2,000 meters in the Lucius field for Anadarko.

The vessel, based on the Ulstein’s SOC 5000 design, is 211 meters long and 46 meters wide. Aegir’s Offshore Mast Crane can lift 4,000 mT. It took Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering around 55.000 tons of steel, 1500 km of welding and 1300 km of electric wiring to build the Aegir.

Award Nomination

In a separate note, the company informed that Heerema Marine Contractors has been nominated for the KVNR Shipping Award with the Aegir. This category, one of five, awards distinctive business management in the field of vessel innovation as well as social, organizational and sustainable innovation.
