Building on thirty years of learning
Offshore decommissioning can be full of surprises, but with Heerema's experience there is little we haven't seen before
We deliver safe, cost-effective, and predictable solutions for your removal and recycling needsRead about the Sable Island removal with Heerema
No matter the location or complexity
With complex and deteriorated structures, sometimes unclear data, and strict regulatory requirements you need an experienced partner you can trust in your decommissioning campaign. We understand local legislation requirements and will keep your project on track and help avoid costly surprises.
Creative solutions for complex challenges
Around the globe, there is an increasing number of offshore facilities reaching the end of their lifetime. We take on the responsibility of a successful decommissioning process with integrated Engineering, Preparations, Removal, and Disposal (EPRD) services.
You are in safe hands, and we deliver predictable execution by getting involved early to understand associated risks. We also examine all aspects of projects in our onshore Simulation Center. These measures ensure we deliver fully engineered and risk-assessed solutions to reduce exposure for our clients.
We focus on safety and sustainability
We work together with clients to decommission and recycle retired infrastructure in a way that leaves the oceans as we found them.
Our decommissioning team is dedicated to delivering solutions that limit the environmental footprint of removal projects and follow our strict safety Dare to Care program.
