As part of its ongoing commitment to providing the highest level of service to its heavy lift and project cargo customers, Intermarine, LLC (Intermarine) is adding 15 new vessels to its fleet.
“We are launching our fleet renewal program with long term charters on a series of new vessels from Sanfu Shipyard & Huanghai, two of the foremost builders of ships in China. These state-of-the-art, fuel-efficient, eco-friendly new builds further enhance and validate our commitment to being a high quality partner and operator in heavy lift/project transport. They also help us meet the rising demands of our valued customers,” said Frank Fischer, Managing Director Tonnage Procurement.
“As is our normal practice, we are partnering with excellent owners on this leg of our new build program,” added Alfred J.V. Stanley, President and CEO. “These mid-size new builds will form the core of our future fleet and provide an industry leading level of flexibility and efficiency. This is in line with our strategy of focusing on our customer’s cargo and providing the best available tonnage,” he continued.
“The new buildings are going to be the backbone of our worldwide fleet in the future,” Ask M. Munck, Managing Director Worldwide Chartering Services, went on to say.
The first ship is expected to enter into service in 2015, the company said.
