Dutch crane specialist Huisman has recently won a contract from Singapore’s Jurong Shipyard to supply a pedestal-mounted offshore crane for the LNG-powered semi-submersible crane vessel Sleipnir.

Huisman said in a statement it will deliver one 100 mega-tonne PMOC to the Jurong shipyard for the Sleipnir that is currently under construction. The vessel is owned by Heerema.

The crane will be built in China with delivery expected in March 2018. It will function as auxiliary crane for the two 10,000-mega-tonne tub cranes onboard the semi-submersible crane vessel, Huisman noted in the statement.

The Sleipnir will be powered by dual fuel engines able to run both on MGO & LNG.

Sipke Schuurmans, Project Director at Heerema Marine Contractors, recently said at the Offshore Energy Exhibition and Conference (OEEC) in Amsterdam that Sleipnir will have the largest LNG fuel plant installed up to date with a total power of 96 MW.

The LNG fuel plant will have a capacity of 8000 cubic meters and Heerema is currently in talks with several companies to supply the fuel to the crane vessel, Schuurmans said.
