The Netherlands-headquartered Universal Africa Lines (UAL) has added the multipurpose ship UAL Fortitude to its fleet of vessels serving the West African market.
The ship, which has three box-shaped holds, is equipped with a pair of 180-tonne capacity cranes that can lift 360 tonnes in tandem lifts.
“We are very excited to have this new lady in our fleet,” says Harald Maas, director of UAL Netherlands. “The oil and gas industry is putting more and more demands on the lifting capacity of our vessels, and this latest addition will ensure UAL will maintain its position as the leading carrier for the oil and gas industry in West Africa for years to come. We are looking for further expansion of our fleet in the very near future, especially in the heavy lift segment."
