Keith joins dship fleet

dship Carriers has taken delivery of its latest newbuild multipurpose vessel.

Christened Keith, the ship is the second F500 Eco Trader-type vessel to join the dship fleet. HLPFI readers will recall that the first unit in the series, Mick, entered service in April 2019.

In total, dship will take delivery of four newbuild vessels; the remaining two units are scheduled for delivery in 2020.

Like its sister ships, Keith has two 250-tonne capacity cranes. It will soon complete its maiden voyage from China to Europe via the US Gulf.
