Two general cargo vessels join dship Carriers fleet
Eemslift Dafne and Eemslift Nadine are the two general cargo vessels that will be joining the dship Carriers’ fleet during the month of September. With the addition, the company is extending its service portfolio to tackle the tighter space availability in the market.
Both vessels have a deadweight of 4,200 metric tons and on-board cranes with a combined lifting capacity of up to 300 metric tons. They are certified for open hatch sailing and will be serving dship’s clients in all major industry segments such as oil and gas, floating cargo and renewable energy worldwide, the company informed in its statement.
The size of the two new vessels allows for shallow port calls. With their service speed, they are some of the fastest in dship’s fleet, complementing the existing fleet, the statement reads.
“With the addition of Eemslift Dafne and Eemslift Nadine, we are not only expanding our existing fleet, but are also able to offer our existing and new clients an extended service portfolio in times of tighter space availability,” said Lars Feller, global vice president of dship Carriers.
dship fleet consists of various multi-purpose, heavy lift, and tween deck vessels with a combined crane capacity of up to 500 metric tons and a deadweight of up to 19,617 metric tons. With the newly chartered vessels, dship Carriers is extending its fleet to a total of 20 vessels.
