The main offshore crane ensures sufficient lifting capacity to execute installation of fixed platforms in relatively shallow water. The ship can switch pipe reels on location and can work in water depths of up to 3,500 m. As the ship can stay on location and combine different projects at once, it saves time and reduces the need of other ships.
The 211.5 m long DP3 vessel, is equipped with a pipelay tower for J-lay operations with a tension capacity of 2,000 mT. The main crane has a revolving lift capacity of 4,000 metric tons at a radius between 17 and 40 m and is equipped with a deepwater lowering system to reach a water depth of 3,500 metres. The ship accommodates up to 305 persons, and has a transit speed of 12 knots.
The vessel was built at the DSME shipyard in South Korea, where the construction started in August 2011. After final outfitting on the lay system in Rotterdam in spring 2013, the vessel started work for Heerema.
In October 2013, ‘Aegir’ was awarded KVNR’s (the Royal Association of Dutch Shipowners) Shipping Award.
