Intermarine goes for 15

May 12 - Intermarine LLC is adding 15 new vessels to its fleet to meet the rising demand of its heavy lift and project cargo customers.

Frank Fischer, managing director of tonnage and procurement, expained that Intermarine is launching its fleet renewal programme with long term charters on new vessels from the Taizhou Sanfu Shipyard and Huanghai Shipyard in China.

"These state-of-the-art, fuel efficient, eco-friendly newbuilds further enhance and validate our commitment to being a high quality partner and operator in heavy lift and project transport," said Fischer.

Intermarine expects the first ship to enter service in 2015, with the rest of the vessels being delivered over a two year period.
