Peace-of-mind platform decommissioning solutions

At Heerema, our offshore decommissioning execution philosophy is firmly based on five pillars to help customers succeed: Reputation, Capability, Predictability, Flexibility and Responsibility. Our unsurpassed track record of successfully executed, complex, and integrated Engineering, Preparations, Removal and Disposal (EPRD) projects underscores the robustness of this philosophy. We deliver peace of mind, cost-effective and complete EPRD solutions to our customers.

Heerema operates its own fleet of semi-submersible crane vessels as well as a large number of transportation barges and tugs. This provides us with access to the most suitable assets for complex offshore removal operations in the harshest of environments. The realisation of an inhouse Simulation Center and the introduction of our new SSCV Sleipnir in 2019 will further expand the offshore capabilities that we can draw on to deliver cost effective and smooth removal operations.

A proven decommissioning approach that exceeds customers' demands

Companies now face increasingly difficult decommissioning projects with a variety of challenges. Complex, deteriorated structures, unclear data, tough marine environments and strict regulatory requirements are just a few examples. What is the best technical decommissioning approach?

At Heerema, our offshore decommissioning execution philosophy is firmly based on five pillars to help customers succeed: Reputation, Capability, Predictability, Flexibility and Responsibility. Our unsurpassed track record of successfully executed, complex, and integrated Engineering, Preparations, Removal and Disposal (EPRD) projects underscores the robustness of this philosophy. We deliver peace of mind, cost-effective and complete EPRD solutions to our customers. 

Predictable execution through early involvement

Executing a successful offshore decommissioning project depends on a thorough understanding of the scope, as well as knowledge of all associated risks. The only way to acquire this type of extensive knowledge is through experience - by having done it many times before. We emphasize a detailed, early engagement process with our customers, to make sure we understand their drivers an projects thoroughly.

We invite our customers to our Simulation Center to examine every aspect of the proposed project as we look for trouble spots and potential areas of improvement to proactively eliminate surprises. As a result, our customers receive fully-engineered and risk-assessed solutions, reducing exposure to all stakeholders.

A responsible approach to everything we do

Our commitment to Quality Assurance, Safety, Health and the Environment (QASHE) aims to prevent harm to people and the environment they work in. And it's an integral part of virtually all our activities. We adhere to ISO certification and legal standards across the globe. We are committed to maintaining an injury and incident-free workplace.

We have a 98% recycling rate for decommissioned materials. And we measure the environmental impact created by our assets and activities and set annual targets for the continuous improvement of our environmental performance and the prevention of pollution. On every project, and in everything that we do, we perform with fairness, integrity and respect, making sustainable contributions to the economies in which we operate.

Truly capable in any marine environment

Heerema operates its own fleet of semi-submersible crane vessels as well as a large number of transportation barges and tugs. This provides us with access to the most suitable assets for complex offshore removal operations in the harshest environments. With the introduction of our new SSCV Sleipnir in 2019, we have further expanded our offshore capabilities to ensure delivery of cost effective and smooth removal operations.

Our decommissioning teams have the passion and expertise needed to plan, execute and finish decommissioning projects incident-free and according to plan. They have the ability to mitigate unforeseen issues before they become a problem. Their collaborative approach ensures alignment on all timeline, technical, safety and environmental matters as well as the mangement experience to run smooth, stable operations in any environment across the globe.
