    Thialf gets a thruster upgrade

    Vessel & ROV News // July 5, 2002
    Heerema Marine Contractors has upgraded the semi-submersible construction vessel Thialf's thrusters.

    The work followed close behind the major conversion of the SSCV Balder as a deepwater construction vessel.

    The multi million dollar thruster project took five months to complete.

    A spokesman for HMC added: "This major investment project is part of our programme to maintain our vessels to the highest standards. It will ensure that Hereema Marine Contractors can meet the exceeding demands of the industry."

    Since the completion of the thruster project in April, Thialf has performed several successful installations contracts in the North Sea.
