2017 Hermod's Last trip

 

Heerema Marine Contractor’s semi-submersible crane vessel Hermod, an icon of the offshore industry, will retire at the end of this year after an impressive operational performance of nearly 40 years.

 

Designed and constructed in the 70’s, Hermod and her sister vessel Balder were the first semi-submersible crane vessels of its kind in the offshore construction industry. The semi-submersible concept was developed with the aim to extend the operability in the harsh North Sea environment and furthermore to deliver superior lifting capacity. This allowed Heerema Marine Contractors to work faster and during more months of the year than the conventional mono-hull crane vessels of the time. After delivery by the Japanese Mitsui yard in 1978, Hermod’s first job was the installation of the Piper A platform on the United Kingdom Continental Shelf. She executed her first project outside the North Sea in Brazil in the mid-eighties, followed by projects in the Gulf of Mexico, South East Asia and Africa. Throughout her career, Hermod worked in more than 25 countries and was involved in several ‘first-of’ installation projects
