HMC’s Aegir Arrives in the Netherlands
Heerema Marine Contractor’s new Deepwater Construction Vessel Aegir arrived in Rotterdam’s Caland Canal after a journey of almost two months from the DSME shipyard in Okpo, South Korea where it was built.
The 210m long and 46.2m wide vessel will move to the Huisman yard in Schiedam in April where the pipelay equipment will be installed.
Aegir is scheduled to start work on its first installation project (Anadarko Lucius) in the Gulf of Mexico in the fourth quarter of 2013. Hereafter Aegir will move to Australia where she will install infield flowlines, subsea structures and moorings for the INPEX (I8U.F) Ichthys Offshore Development.
