A great variety of heavy and over-sized cargoes of long-standing clients in the oil & gas, mining and power generating industries, is carried worldwide by its modern fleet of thirteen specialized heavy lift vessels. All vessels are equipped with their own gear with capacities ranging upto 1400 mt and some with ro-ro capability for loads up to 2500 mt. Furthermore, five multi-purpose heavy lift carriers with lifting capacity of 2 x 400 mt and deadweight of 17,250 mt were recently added to the fleet. Two more vessels, with lifting capacities up to 1800 mt in tandem, will join the fleet in 2012 and 2013. A team of dedicated, highly skilled professionals, with years of experience and the mindset to think creatively, enables the company to offer innovative and safe solutions for clients’ technically and logistically complex requirements.
Careful planning, engineering, coordination and supervision to ensure safe transportation are all in a day’s work. BigLift is well-known for heir reliability, providing fast and above all safe transportation. Another strong point of BigLift’s fleet is that the Happy D-type vessels can sail with open hatches, enabling them to transport much higher cargoes. Other vessels must place such cargoes on the weather deck which may cause stability issues. BigLift sees the offshore industry as an important market for the transportation of heavy constructions all over the world. And expects that the demand for transportation of heavy cargoes will grow considerably again. Worldwide, the oil and gas industries engage in major investments which gives new chances. Other markets such as electricity and port development are also sources for work.
