WSM's graceful comeback to heavy lift sector

June 13 - Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM) has been appointed as the ship manager for GPO Heavylift's purpose-built semi-submersible vessel, GPO Grace.

"It will be our first heavy lift vessel in our managed fleet today and we aim to expand further in this segment," says Carl Schou, president of WSM. The vessel is due to be delivered at the end of June and is expected to load her first cargoes in July.

"With this latest addition into our managed fleet, it is a comeback for us in the heavy lift segment. Such an advanced vessel fits well with our digital solution which will enhance operational efficiency," Schou added.

GPO Grace will be managed by the Oslo management centre, while the process of securing the second contract with GPO Heavylift for the second heavy lift vessel, GPO Amethyst is currently ongoing.
