GE to power world’s largest crane vessel

GE has signed a deal which will see it provide equipment for one of the world’s largest crane vessels – Heerema Marine Contractors’ Sleipnir.

The Sleipnir semi-submersible crane vessel is currently under construction at Sembcorp Marine’s Singapore yard.

Under the recently signed deal between GE’s Marine Solutions business and Sembcorp Marine, GE is set to provide the electrical part of the power and propulsion system including 12 sets of 8-megawatt (MW) generators, eight units of 5.5-MW propulsion motors, medium-voltage switchboards, transformers and MV7000 drives. The power generated from the system will position and propel the vessel and provide electricity to the vessel’s onboard systems, GE said.

Once constructed, the Sleipnir will become world’s largest crane vessel, at 220 meters long and 102 meters wide. Its two cranes, to be used for offshore construction and heavy lifting, will each have a lifting capacity of 10,000 tons, and will be used for offshore construction and heavy lifting. The vessel is scheduled to be delivered from the yard in the second half of 2018.
