The Aegir was built by the DSME yard in South Korea and named in September 2013. Huisman was in charge of the installation of the pipelay equipment.

The vessel, which is 210 meters long and 46 meters wide, is capable of executing complex infrastructure and pipeline projects in ultra-deep water and has sufficient lifting capacity to install fixed platforms in relatively shallow water. The design is a customized Ulstein Sea of Solutions SOC 5000. The living quarters are equipped to accommodate 289 persons in single and double cabins, with a maximum of 305 persons.

According to the latest AIS data, the vessel is currently moored in Rotterdam.
