Clipper Projects heads new multi-purpose pool

November 15- Clipper Projects, a leading carrier of project cargo, has created a new multi-purpose (MPP) pool, whichwill form an integrated part of the current Clipper Projects MPP fleet.

The founding members of the pool are: Enzian Ship Management of Zurich, Switzerland; Freese Shipping of Stade, Germany; and Clipper Projects of Copenhagen, Denmark.

The new pool will initially comprise 14 MPP vessels of 15-20,000 dwt with up to 400 tonnes lifting capacity, but it is the intention of the members to expand the pool with more members and vessel tonnage ranging from 10-20,000 dwt.

The pool will be managed by Clipper Projects and will supplement the existing Clipper Projects fleet now numbering 45 modern multi-purpose vessels.

Kristian Morch, partner and ceo of Clipper Projects, commented: "The new pool will enable us to offer unique services to the market in terms of availability and quality. We tailor-make our services to our customers' requirements, instead of the other way around, and theflexibility we are able to offer with the larger fleet will be quite difficult to match."
