Ocean7 Projects merge with Ikonship

March 13 - Effective April 1, two Danish shipping companies, Ocean7 Projects and Ikonship, will merge their activities under the Ocean7 Projects banner.

Svendborg-based Ikonship's fleet of six ships will be merged with that of Kolding-based, Ocean7 Projects giving it modern multipurpose and heavy lift ships ranging from 1,250 to 17,500 dwt, able to undertake open hatch transport of very high or voluminous items.

Long single hatches mean some of the fleet are able to house modules up to 88 m in length below deck, with fast service speeds of 17 knots, and shallow draft operation.

An official statement says that the merger brings together a great deal of shipping expertise and competencies from the project and offshore transport sectors.
