International compressor supplier Tamrotor Marine Compressors (TMC) has been awarded a contract by Sembcorp Marine to supply compressed air systems to the new build Heerema Sleipnir crane vessel.   

The scope of work includes manufacturing and delivery of a complete marine compressed air system, including Smart Air service air compressors, service air dryers, control air compressors and control air dryers. The contract value is undisclosed. 

“Given the size of the Heerema Sleipnir, and the giant operations she will be in charge of, it is vital to have reliable and well-functioning compressors on board,” said Per Kjellin, managing director, TMC.We take great pride in the reliability and energy-efficiency of our compressor systems, and are very pleased that Sembcorp Marine and Heerema Marine Contractors recognize these qualities."

The new generation semi-submersible crane vessel Heerema Sleipnir is designed for worldwide offshore heavy lifting. She will be equipped with two cranes of 10,000-tonne lifting capacity each and a reinforced deck area of 220m in length and 102m in width.

The dual cranes provide for heavy lifting capacity to install and remove both jackets and topsides. The cranes can also be utilized for installation of foundations, moorings and structures in deepwater. Sembcorp Marine in Singapore is constructing the vessel on behalf of Heerema Marine Contractors. The vessel is scheduled for delivery in 2018.
