A very challenging project It is the largest and heaviest jacket ever to be designed by HFG Engineering and built at the Heerema yard in Vlissingen, both part of the Heerema Fabrication Group. One month after its completion in May 2012, the Statoil Valemon jacket, which weighs more than 9,400 tons and is 157 meters high, will be installed in the Norwegian sector of the North Sea. VP Technology Cees Spaans from HFG Engineering in Zwijndrecht and Project Manager Aren Bezuijen from Heerema Vlissingen reveal some details of the design and fabrication of this gigantic jacket and the many challenges that had to be overcome.
