Copenhagen-based shipping company Thorco Shipping and the German project and heavy lift specialist United Heavy Lift have joined forces to create Thorco Projects.

By combining the two companies’ fleets, the joint venture is expected ”to become a major player” within the project and heavy lift market.

Two company profiles complement each other very well, according to Lars Rolner, the founder of United Heavy Lift.

”Thorco has many years of expertise and a large and diverse fleet. We have very strong engineering skills and posses a deep know-how within heavy lift. Together our combined fleet and experience enable us to provide a full range of services, offering everything from general and project cargo to heavy lift, with vessels geared up to 800 tonnes and deck carriers which can load units up to 8,000 tonnes,” Rolner said.

Thorco owns and operates a fleet of around 80 multipurpose vessels ranging from 7,800 to 20,000 dwt.

United Heavy Lift was founded in April 2015 and the company operates a fleet of five vessels.

Both parties are privately and family-held companies. Thorco by the global conglomerate Thornico, owned by Christian and Thor Stadil, and United Heavy Lift by Lars Rolner.

Thomas Mikkelsen, CEO and Partner in Thorco, said: “Geographically we have different strong points which can benefit us mutually. All in all, our profiles fit each other very well and by joining forces, we believe we are creating a very solid and even better platform, meeting the needs and demands of all our clients. In this way, THORCO PROJECTS can simply cover the entire project market.”
