Jumbo sets heavy lift record

May 12

The first test was executed with a weight of 250 tonnes, with the weight gradually increasing to a maximum of 1,650 tonnes, which included a 10 percent overload. The final test was a tandem lift of 3,000 tonnes, which Jumbo says its new vessel "passed with distinction".

Jumbo Kinetic, which is the first of two new K3000 vessels in Jumbo's fleet, has a dual lift capability of 3,000 tonnes and has Ice Class 1A Swedish/Finnish certification. The second K3000 vessel, Jumbo Fairmaster, is due to enter service in the third quarter of 2015.

Having been ordered back in 2011, Jumbo Kinetic was finally delivered to Jumbo at the end of 2014, after disagreements between the heavy lift shipping company and Croatia's Brodosplit shipyard. In January of this year, the vessel's cranes were fitted in China. 

Jumbo Kinetic's next commercial voyage starts in Zhangzhou and consists of two consecutive trips to Samsung Heavy Industries' facility at Geoje Island in Korea.
