TMC to supply compressor systems for Heerema’s Sleipnir SSCV

Compressor supplier Tamrotor Marine Compressors (TMC) has been awarded a contract by Sembcorp Marine to supply compressed air systems for the world’s largest crane vessel – Heerema’s Sleipnir SSCV.

TMC said on Thursday that the scope includes manufacturing and delivery of a marine compressed air system, including Smart Air service air compressors, service air dryers, control air compressors and control air dryers.

Per Kjellin, managing director of TMC, said: “Given the size of the Heerema Sleipnir, and the giant operations she will be in charge of, it is vital to have reliable and well-functioning compressors on board. We are very pleased that Sembcorp Marine and Heerema Marine Contractors recognize our qualities.”

The new generation semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir is designed for worldwide offshore construction and heavy lifting. It will be equipped with two cranes of 10,000 metric tonnes lifting capacity each and, upon completion, will become the world’s largest crane vessel, at 220 meters long and 102 meters wide.

“Heerema Sleipnir will handle multi-billion dollar assets, so maximum operational uptime will be critical. Hence, she will require compressors that are specially designed and built for marine applications,” added Kjellin.

The dual cranes provide for heavy lifting capacity to install and remove both jackets and topsides. The cranes can also be utilized for installation of foundations, moorings, and structures in deep water. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2018 and is being constructed by Sembcorp Marine.

To remind, Singapore’s Sembcorp Marine, through its wholly owned subsidiary Jurong Shipyard, secured a $1 billion engineering and construction deal with Heerema Offshore Services to build the DP3 SSCV back in July 2015.
