Singapore: Sembcorp Marine completes world’s first dual fuel SSCV

29 May 2019

Singapore shipyard Sembcorp Marine on Friday (24 May) said it has completed the world’s biggest semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV) for owner Heerema Marine Contractors.

The duel fuelled SSCV is the world’s first crane vessel with dual-fuel engines running on marine gas oil (MGO) and liquefied natural gas (LNG).

Named after the Norse God Odin’s eight-legged stallion and newly completed at Sembcorp Marine’s Tuas Boulevard Yard for owner Heerema Marine Contractors, SSCV Sleipnir has a 220-metre by 102-metre reinforced deck area, making it the largest crane vessel to be built.

The vessel also has two 10,000-tonne revolving cranes which can lift loads of up to 20,000 tonnes in tandem. No other existing crane vessel has this capability.

Sleipnir can accommodate 400 persons and will be deployed globally for installing and removing jackets, topsides, deep-water foundations, moorings and other offshore structures.

“I am immensely proud that Heerema Marine Contractors is again taking things further with the introduction of our new semi-submersible crane vessel,” said Pieter Heerema, Chairman of the Board at Heerema Marine Contractors.

Sleipnir scores several firsts in the industry: It is the largest crane vessel yet built; it has the strongest pair of revolving cranes; and it’s also the world’s first crane vessel with dual-fuel engines running on MGO and LNG, dramatically reducing harmful emissions.

Sleipnir’s innovative capabilities will place Heerema even firmer at the forefront of developments in the offshore oil, gas and wind energy industry for both installations and decommissioning.”
