In today’s spotted we bring you the newly built deck carrier, the MV Vir Varenya, that has been added to the charter fleet of Hamburg-based heavy-lift shipping company United Heavy Lift.

Owned by J.M. Baxi Group, the maritime logistics and port infrastructure company, the MV Vir Varenya was completed in China in June 2016.

On its almost 2,700 m² deck, this special-purpose vessel can transport large components for the wind energy and offshore industries.

The 10,000 dwt Vir Varenya features a length of 130 meters and a width of 25 meters. In addition, the vessel has a design draught of only 5.3 meters, which means “it can be deployed anywhere in the world,” United Heavy Lift said. 

“At the moment, we see that customers for chartering the deck carrier are primarily in the northern European market. At the same time, the markets in Africa and the Near East are developing strongly. For the waters and ports there, a shallow draught is of crucial importance for a deck carrier,” Lars Rolner, founder and managing director of United Heavy Lift, said.
