April 28 - SAL Heavy Lift's Maria has called at the port of Tanjung Langsat in Malaysia to load a 120-tonne cold box for Air Products.

The vessel, which is one of SAL's type 161B vessels featuring a 700-tonne lift capacity, is en route to Derince, where its cargo will be discharged.

"Timeliness is an essential ingredient of our business," said Justin Archard, managing director of SAL's Southeast Asia and Australasia operations.

"We were able to book and load in less than a week for the client due to the strategic positioning of the MV Maria," he added. "The 20-knot capacity will ensure the cargo can be delivered within a tight timeframe."
