United O7 – United Heavy Lift (UHL) and Ocean7 Projects’ joint venture – is opening a branch office in Italy from July 2023.


Based in Genova, United O7 Italy will be managed by Luca De Ferrari, and supported by Alessandro de Vincentiis as chartering manager. It will offer a wide range of services including project cargo management, heavy lift transportation, and chartering.

Ocean7’s ceo Stefan Petersen said: “Italy has been an important market for both United Heavy Lift and Ocean7 Projects for years, so it’s only natural that we continue our growth with this new facility.”

Managing partner of UHL, Lars Bonnesen, added: “We are pleased to expand our successful collaboration with Ocean7 together with local partners. The concept has proven that together we can improve our ability to offer a broader and more specialized range of services to our close customers.”
