Energy Talks & Drinks | The heaviest lift in history executed by Heerema

Heerema Marine Contractors set a new world record lifting and shared their vision on offshore challenges.

On January 12 we kicked off our Energy Talks & Drinks for 2023 with a groundbreaking project.

Last October Heerema Marine Contractors set again a new world record while safely installing TotalEnergies’ biggest Tyra II topside on the last remaining bare jacket at the Tyra field. The lift of the 17,000 metric tons heavy process module broke a world record as the heaviest crane lift ever undertaken at sea. An operation involving more than 260 offshore workers. The lift has been prepared for years and required a lot of coordination, horsepower, and precision.

Jan van Akkeren, Director Operations & Equipment and Herman Rijnders, Offshore Construction Superintendent both of Heerema Marine Contractors told us about the heaviest lift ever in history.
