United Heavylift: fleet-to-go
"MV UHL Faith", the first in a series of eight newbuildings, was recently delivered to United Heavy Lift. The delivery took place at the CSSC shipyard in Hudong, China.
"We look forward to taking delivery of six identical newbuildings in 2021 and two in early 2022,” says Lars Rolner, senior advisor and founder of the United Group. Once the new-building programme is completed, UHL will service its clients with a fleet of seventeen F900 Eco-Lifter vessels.
Lars Bonnesen, managing director of UHL, underlined that the carbon footprint of the F900 class was 30-50% smaller compared to the existing heavy lift fleet. The vessels’ weather deck encompasses 2,990 sqm (123.5 m x 25.6 m). "MV UHL Faith" will start her maiden voyage towards Europe, where she is expected to arrive in Hamburg, Germany in February. (cd)
