UWL takes BoldWind delivery

United Wind Logistics (UWL) has taken delivery of the first of two state-of-the-art deck carriers – the 10,000 dwt BoldWind.

The deck carrier has started its maiden voyage towards Europe, where it will be employed on a long-term charter, moving offshore wind energy cargoes.

BoldWind has a deck length of 128 m and a width of 28 m. It combines an optimised hull design with diesel-electric propulsion – the electric package was supplied by ABB and is powered by four MAN diesel generators driven by marine diesel oil.

The MAN engines meet IMO Tier III emission regulations having been equipped with a selective catalytic reduction system, said United Wind Logistics.

“We are proud to affirm our company’s aspirations to take over as front-runners for an eco-friendly shipping industry. We are already looking forward to receiving the sister newbuilding BraveWind in four months from now,” said Christoph Puschmann, managing director of UWL.
