United Wind Logistics (UWL) has taken delivery of the newbuild vessel BraveWind.

BraveWind is the sistership of the 10,000 dwt deck carrier BoldWind, which was delivered earlier this year, as HLPFI reported here

The deck carrier’s maiden voyage involves the transport of barges from Nantong, China, to Rotterdam, the Netherlands.

Both ships have a deck length of 128 m and a width of 28 m. They combine an optimised hull design with diesel-electric propulsion – the electric package was supplied by ABB and is powered by four MAN diesel generators driven by marine diesel oil.
