The largest jacket ever designed and fabricated at Heerema Fabrication Group (HFG) ready for installation.
Saturday 26 May the 9,150 tonnes Statoil jacket sets sail from the Heerema Vlissingen yard to its final destination the Valemon gasfield on the Norwegian Continental Shelf in a water depth of approximately 135 metres and about 160 kilometers west of Bergen, Norway.
In less than 2 years, after contract award in September 2010, Heerema Fabrication Group designed and fabricated this gigantic 160 metres high jacket for the Valemon process platform. Additionally in March 2011 Statoil awarded HFG the contract to design and fabricate the 210 tonnes weighing wellhead module. The jacket and wellhead module were both designed by HFG’s in-house design company HFG Engineering and the fabrication contract awarded to Heerema Vlissingen yard.
