Heerema: DCV Balder's Back in Business

Heerema Marine Contractors said that the Deepwater Construction Vessel (DCV) Balder restarted its work in the Gulf of Mexico at 6 p.m. local time Thursday. The Balder, one of Heerema's three crane vessels, left its repair position at Ewing Bank and set sail to the project location in the Gulf.

The Balder had been out of order since December 27, 2006, when the vessel experienced unexpected flooding. Repairs to the two damaged thrusters began immediately after the incident, which caused no harm to personnel or the environment.
