ULSTEIN Designed Deepwater Construction Vessel ‘Aegir’ Wins KVNR Shipping Award

Heerema Marine Contractors’ new Deepwater Construction Vessel ‘Aegir’, a customised ULSTEIN SOC 5000 design developed by Ulstein Sea of Solutions, won the Dutch KVNR Shipping Award.

The state-of-the-art vessel is designed for world-wide operations and suited for executing complex infrastructure and pipeline projects in ultra-deep water. The vessel is capable to switch between various pipelay modes and has sufficient lifting capacity to install fixed platforms in relatively shallow waters as well as performing installations jobs in deep water. The maximum waterdepth in which she is able to operate is 3,500 m. The versatility in operational modes allows HMC to offer its clients savings in additional vessels and mobilization and sailing times.

‘We are proud that we have been able to support Heerema in developing this innovative vessel based on combining Heeremas operational experience and our design experiences in complex offshore construction vessels’, says Edwin van Leeuwen, General Manager at Ulstein Sea of Solutions.

KVNR is the Dutch Association of Ship Owners.
