UWL deck carrier launched in Zhenjiang

Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard has launched United Wind Logistics’ (UWL) specialised deck carrier at its shipyard in China. 

The 10,000 dwt ship has a total length of 148.5 m and is equipped with an electric propulsion system.

Named Boldwind, the vessel will be used to transport offshore wind energy components and heavy modules.

UWL operates a fleet of chartered tonnage, including deck carriers. Earlier this year, the company confirmed that it initiated a newbuilding programme at Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard, China, for up to four deck carriers.

This is the first of two vessels that have been ordered. The ships are scheduled for delivery in 2020.
