Heerema Marine Contractors is set to take delivery of next generation semi-submersible crane vessel: Sleipnir. The Sleipnir is designed for worldwide offshore heavy lifting. The Sleipnir is self-propelled with a minimum service speed of 10 knots, with power generated by means of dual fuel engines – MGO & LNG. Station-keeping is by means of dynamic positioning (DP3) or mooring system. Heerema Marine Contractors committed to LNG propulsion as it was persuaded of the environmental benefits. It made the necessary investments ahead of the necessary supporting infrastructure being in place.
Royal Boskalis Westminster N.V. (Boskalis) will use a biofuel blend on the project to install the export cable to the Borssele offshore wind farm resulting in a more sustainable realization of this renewable energy project. The Borssele Alpha project is being executed on behalf of TenneT and is aimed at connecting the Borssele offshore grid with the Dutch high-voltage grid. During this project Boskalis will run its vessels on a biofuel blend of up to 30 per cent. Using biofuel is one aspect of the 'Boskalis on Bio' program, for which the company recently signed a long-term partnership with biofuel supplier GoodFuels. The program is aimed at achieving a 35% reduction in the CO2 emitted by the Boskalis fleet and equipment in the Netherlands in the next five years.
