Heerema have mostly chosen to use their own ships for supporting their crane barges, when this might be required, and in line with that process the President Hubert has been working for them for years, although now pensioned off. Here it is laying anchors for the Hermod back in 2004 at Ekofisk. It was also used for bringing barges out to the location when things were being built out there, or if some other craft towed a barge out it might be connected up to the stern for it to be positioned for a lift.
