The offshore operations are scheduled to be performed in 2020.
“The scope of work under this contract represents a critical phase of the Maersk Oil Tyra Redevelopment project and involves a number of delicate offshore lift operations. We appreciate the trust Maersk Oil has once again placed in HMC by awarding this work to us”, says Chief Commercial Officer Harke Jan Meek.
For the Tyra project, Heerema’s new SSCV Sleipnir will be used. The SSCV is under construction at Sembcorp Marine in Singapore. According to plans Sleipnir will be delivered in 2019.
