The Netherlands-based BigLift Shipping has agreed to cooperate with South Korea’s Chung Yang Shipping (CY) in the heavy transport sector.
BigLift Shipping will commercially operate two pairs of sisterships under the agreement: BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin, along with CY Interocean I and CY Interocean II.
The deck carriers are almost similar with respect to deck space. The CY vessels have a shallower draught, which allows the vessels to call at a wider range of ports.
The two companies said that they are ready to meet the future demands of the LNG, oil and gas markets, and handle cargoes for renewable energy projects, while adhering to the highest quality, health and safety standards.
BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin are 21,675 dwt deck carriers designed for the transportation of modules and equipment for energy projects both on and offshore. The open-stern ships have a deck space of 42 m x 125 m.
