SSCV Sleipnir, the record-setting semi-submersible crane vessel, will soon be ready for operations following a christening and delivery ceremony in Singapore where it was built by Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard.

Dubbed as the world’s biggest and most powerful of its kind, the vessel is also the first of its kind to use dual-fuel engines running on MGO and LNG.

Named after the Norse God Odin’s eight-legged stallion, Sleipnir was built for Dutch Heerema Marine Contractors.

The vessel has a pair of revolving cranes that can lift 20,000 tonnes in tandem. Additionally, it is the first dual-fuel crane vessel, with engines running on MGO and LNG.

Sleipnir is set to enter service in the coming months, after completing sea trials.

SSCV Sleipnir has a 220-meter by 102-meter reinforced deck area and can accommodate 400 persons. It will be deployed globally for installing and removing jackets, topsides, deep-water foundations, moorings and other offshore structures.

Heerema has already secured contracts to deploy the vessel in various offshore energy developments in the Mediterranean Sea, and various sector of the North Sea.
