United Heavy Lift (UHL) and Ocean7 Projects will open a joint office in Malaysia.

HLPFI readers will recall that the companies, which specialise in the commercial management and operation of heavy lift tonnage, opened a joint office in Bergen, Norway during September.

Located in Kuala Lumpur, the Malaysian office will operate as United O7 Asia and will be led by Rune Larsen, who has been appointed managing partner. Skyler Teh and Catherine Hybel will support him.

Jesper Henriksen, director and partner at Ocean7 Projects, said: “We are quite excited to see United O7 Asia take off, bringing us a step closer to the many loyal clients in the Asia Pacific region through a very experienced local team.”
