HMC owns the world’s largest crane vessels: semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV) Thialf and Deepwater Construction vessels (DCV) Balder and Aegir (monohull). The Deepwater Construction Vessels can next to their lifting capabilities also execute complex deepwater infrastructure and pipeline projects in ultra deep water. HMC is also currently developing a new vessel: the new-generation semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir, which will be operational in 2019.
Our fleet has large deck areas and unique capacities in the areas of heavy lifting and motion behavior. This has earned us a reputation for superior workability and excellent station-keeping.
Harsh environments and great water depths demand an innovative approach, experience, and, of course, the right equipment. Our versatile fleet and sound project management ensure a smooth marine operation.
Fast sailing Heavy Lift Vessel Aegir is a monohull vessel with the capability to execute the transportation, installation and decommissioning of offshore facilities for both the oil & gas and Offshore Wind market.
Balder is a Semi Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) and is capable to execute a tandem lift of 6,300 T. The cranes provide for a depth reach lowering capability as well as a heavy lift capacility to install topsides.
This multi-functional dynamic positioned SSCV is tailored for the installation of foundations, moorings, SPARs, TLPs, integrated topsides, turbines, AC substations and DC convertor stations.
HMC operates a large variety of marine equipment, e.g. tugs, barges, and hammers.
Semi Submersible Crane Vessel (SSCV) Thialf is after Heerema's Sleipnir the second world’s largest crane vessel and is capable of a tandem lift of 14,200t. The dual cranes provide for depth reach lowering capability as well as heavy lift capacity. This multi-functional dynamic positioned SSCV is tailored for the transportation, installation and decommissioning of foundations, moorings, SPARs, TLPs, integrated topsides, turbines, AC substations and DC convertor stations.
Sleipnir is a new-generation Semi Surbmersible Crane Vessel with a pair of revolving cranes that can lift 20,000 Tonnes in tandem - no other existing crane vessel has this capacity.
The vessel is also the first dual-fuel crane vessel with engines running on MGO and LNG for sustainable operation across all environmental jurisdictions.
