Heerema’s New Vessel Set Sail for The Netherlands

On January 16, Heerema Marine Contractor’s new Deepwater Construction Vessel Aegir set sail for the Netherlands after almost 19 months of construction at the Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) yard in Okpo, South Korea.

After a short stopover in China, where Aegir will load the first pipe reel using its own 4000 t offshore crane, the vessel will continue her voyage to the Netherlands where the installation of the pipe-lay equipment will be performed at the Huisman yard in Schiedam.

Aegir is scheduled to start work on its first installation project in the Gulf of Mexico in the fourth quarter of 2013.
