Dutch BigLift Shipping and Chung Yang Shipping have agreed to cooperate in heavy transport shipping. Their four heavy transport vessels will be commercially operated by BigLift Shipping.
BigLift said that, with the combination of two pairs of sisterships – BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin and CY Interocean I and CY Interocean II – the companies are ready to meet the future demands in the LNG, oil and gas markets, and the renewable market.
According to BigLift, the vessels are similar with respect to deck space, however, the CY vessels’ depth is smaller, enabling BigLift and Chung Yang to handle an even wider range of port locations in respect of water depth and quay heights.
Both Chung Yang and BigLift Shipping will provide technical and operational support in the early stages of the projects.
