Thorco adds vessel trio to its fleet

Thorco Projects has expanded its fleet with the addition of three 12,000 dwt tweendeck vessels.

The vessels - Daisy, Maple Lea and Maple Lotta - feature lifting capacities of between 240 and 500 tonnes.

At the end of 2017 the company launched its Thorco Projects Dry Cargo division to explore the possible synergies of shipping project and dry cargo. According to Thorco's ceo and partner, Thomas Mikkelsen, the division has been well-received by the market.

"Due to an ever-increasing activity, we are required to expand even further," said Mikkelsen, announcing the appointment of Morten Thaarup from Thorco's Houston office and Michael Jørgensen and Jean Noronha, from its Rio de Janeiro office, to the division.

"Adding (staff) from the US and Brazil allows us to be closer to clients and strengthens our position in the Atlantic market," he added.
