Heerema Marine Contractors’ semi-submersible crane vessel (SSCV) Sleipnir, the world’s largest crane vessel powered by GE
At 220 meters long and 102 meters wide, Sleipnir entered service as the world’s largest crane vessel, with two 10,000-tonne revolving cranes. GE was chosen to provide a high-performance electrical power and propulsion system powerful enough to meet the operational energy needs of such a ‘sea giant’. Challenge Sleipnir’s career would be faced with critical operational roles, safely lifting and moving some of the largest assets at sea out in challenging deepwater conditions, from wind farm installation to rig decommissioning.

Electrical high-speed direct drive solution for offshore production platform
Challenge Martin Linge is an oil and gas field located in a water depth of 100 to 120 m in the northern part of the North Sea, about 150 km off the coast of Norway. It was discovered in 1978 and is estimated to contain around 190 million barrels of oil and about 26 billion standard cubic meters of gas. A limited carbon footprint was one of the main constraints requested by the Norwegian authorities for a platform to be allowed to operate there.

Zero-emission ICL compressor helping Storengy achieve its performance and decarbonization goals
In Europe, industrial companies are obliged by environmental regulation to avoid or reduce their polluting emissions. Baker Hughes is committed to helping the oil and gas sector lower the carbon intensity of its value chain by electrifying operations, improving energy efficiency, and adopting low- or no-emission fuels. Our ICL integrated motor compressor and this project are excellent examples of that strategy in motion.
