Multi purpose heavy lift vessels Shipkits

5 September 2012

Late last year, Shipkits BV Shipbuilders in Groningen, signed the contract for the construction of a brand new heavy lift vessel for Hartman Shipping on Urk. In the meanwhile, no less than six vessels have been contracted in this series, the larger part to be delivered in 2013. On Thursday 30 August, Shipkits has awarded Datema with the contract for the supply of all life saving-, fire fighting and personal protective equipment.

Very interesting is, that the vessel with a deadweight of 4200 tons, is equipped with two cargo cranes of 150 tons each and have a top speed of approximately 17 knots. This is, in comparison with other heavy lift vessels, very fast and remarkable. Currently the cutting packages for the first sections have been delivered to our shipyard in Poland, where the hull will be built.
