August 11 - The deugro Group's multipurpose project carrier dship Carriers, has added three heavy lift multipurpose (MPP) vessels to its fleet on a long-term time charter basis, which will primarily be used for trade lanes between Asia, the Middle East Gu

Holandia, Helvetia and Gallia each feature a combined lifting capacity of 240 tonnes and 12,780 dwt. 

Holandia and Helvetia are owned and managed by Germany's BF Shipmanagement, while HS Schiffahrt acquired Gallia in July 2017.

"These vessels are well-suited to support our growing client base and the contracts we have been awarded," said Arne Koester, executive chartering manager at dship Carriers

dship Carriers says it will continue to invest in project vessels between 9,500 to 17,500 dwt.

Its fleet of MPP vessels is designed to support the specialised needs of breakbulk, heavy lift, dry bulk and project cargo.
