At the forefront of a high-profile tow operation

Maersk Supply Service successfully transported one of the largest offshore structure ever built.

In June 2017, Maersk Supply Service successfully completed the tow of the Hebron drilling and production platform for Kiewit-Kvaerner Contractors Canada, contractor to ExxonMobil Canada Ltd. The Hebron structure is one of the largest offshore structures ever built and Maersk Supply Service was at the forefront of the marine operation, supporting in the planning and scoping of the project. Six Maersk Supply Service vessels were included in the fleet that safely transported the 230m tall and 130m wide structure weighing 750,000 tons approximately 370 nautical miles from Bull Arm to Jeanne d’Arc basin in Canada.

In 1997, Maersk Supply Service executed a similar tow operation for the Hibernia project in Newfoundland and Labrador with great success.
