Zeamarine secures BHP contract

Schenker Australia has awarded Zeamarine a transportation contract for the BHP South Flank project in Western Australia.

Zeamarine will be responsible for the transport of 450,000 freight tons of cargo from China to Port Hedland. The majority of the cargoes will be heavy and oversized modules.

For the project, Zeamarine will deploy its Zea 14k-900-type vessels, which were delivered between 2018 and 2019. 

“We are extremely proud of this major award, which represents the largest contract awarded to Zeamarine since its inception,” said Dominik Stehle, chief commercial officer at the Hamburg-headquartered carrier. “The Zea 14k-900 vessel class has proven again to be a valuable asset and we are pleased that our clients recognise the value of these modern and ecologically friendly vessels.”

Last week, Zeamarine took delivery of the ninth vessel of an order originally placed by Intermarine. In joining the fleet, the multipurpose vessel built at Wenchong Shipyard – Zea Future – completes this series.
