HMC Awarded Additional Contract for Tyra Redevelopment Project
Heerema Marine Contractors (HMC) is pleased to announce an additional contract award related to the Maersk Oil Tyra Redevelopment Project.
Following the award of the transportation and installation contract for the processing & accommodation platform earlier this year that required the high-end lifting capacity of Sleipnir, Maersk Oil has awarded an additional contract to HMC for extensive offshore lifting services in the Tyra East and West complexes related to the replacement of the wellhead and riser platform topsides.
The scope of work comprises the removal, transportation and disposal of topsides, bridges and a jacket with a combined weight of around 17,000 mT. and the subsequent transportation and installation of various new topsides and bridges with a combined maximum weight of around 15,000 mT. The offshore operations are scheduled to be performed in 2020.
“The scope of work under this Contract represents a critical phase of the Maersk Oil Tyra Redevelopment project and involves a number of delicate offshore lift operations. We appreciate the trust Maersk Oil has once again placed in HMC by awarding this work to us”, says Chief Commercial Officer Harke Jan Meek.
Heerema Marine Contractors is proud to announce that the company has achieved a next and crucial step in its journey to progress the QUAD lift from an ambitious idea to an industry wide accepted technology. The QUAD Lift Development received its Technology Qualification Certificate from DNVGL.

Heerema Marine Contractors is incredibly proud to announce that our Installation Engineer Marius Ottolini has been elected winner of the 2018 “Offshore Energy Young Engineer Award.” Marius received his award for being one of the big drivers within Heerema in the development of silent foundations, with the aim to reduce or eliminate piling noise. Such noise can affect the marine environment to a substantial degree. He has developed several alternatives which are a step change in foundation design, in particular because the foundation can be installed silently and it can be completely removed after it has reached its end of life.
