Heerema's Sleipnir set 15,300-tonne record lift.

Dutch marine contractor Heerema, the owner of Sleipnir, claimed it as a new world record lift of 15,300-tonne over the weekend of 7th & 8th September by a crane vessel.

Sleipnir was used to install a topsides module for the Noble Energy Leviathan gas field development in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Israel. It was the larger of two main topsides lifted in by Sleipnir. Total weight was 24,500 tonnes. Both lifts were completed in less than 20 hours, Heerema said.

“We are very proud of this achievement. Sleipnir is a unique vessel. It is LNG powered and thus climate-friendly. And our client enjoys the benefits. Because lifting larger modules means less time involved and therefore a smaller budget will suffice for a job.”

Sleipnir is a new semi-submersible super heavy lift crane vessel with a capacity of 20,000 tonnes on two revolving cranes. It is used to install and remove large modules. For installation, there is less time needed working offshore with complete modules because they have already been commissioned. It saves time and money.
