Heerema Fabrication Group loaded the 8,500 tons Hejre jacket onto a Heerema barge at Vlissingen.
The jacket will be part of DONG Energy’s Hejre development, the largest oil and gas project in the Danish sector of the North Sea.
Heerema secured the contract for the construction of Hejre jacket from Technip, which will, in cooperation with DSME, provide topsides for the platform.
The 8-legs launch jacket has a length of 60 m, a width of 35 m and a height of 85 m.
Along with the jacket, Heerema will deliver piles and a 900 ton pre-drilling wellhead deck which is scheduled for load out in the first week of May.
The costs of the field development are expected to amount to about DKK 12 billion, and the production from the reservoir is expected to be about 15 million m3 of oil and about 10 billion m3 of gas during the term of the project.
The production start-up is scheduled for 2016.
