Swedish bunker supplier Gasum on Thursday (4 June) said it has completed a liquefied natural gas (LNG) bunkering operation for Heerema’s Sleipnir, the largest semi-submersible crane vessel in the world.
The bunkering operation took place in May at Åmøyfjorden, Norway, and was performed by Gasum’s LNG bunkering vessel Kairos.
“The bunkering operation was swift and efficient, saving valuable time and allowing Sleipnir to start her work quickly,” said Jacob Granqvist, Sales Director for Maritime at Gasum.
“Our bunker vessel Kairos was the only vessel able to bunker Sleipnir in her current state. To reach the fuel tank we needed to lift the bunker hose more than 28 meters above sea level.”
Heerema’s Sleipnir performed decommissioning work at the Ekofisk platform in May to remove the retired platform.
Sleipnir will continue to operate on the Norwegian Continental Shelf for the next few months.
