BigLift Shipping’s heavy-lift vessel Happy Star reached her destination and docked at the Port of Rotterdam on October 20th, carrying almost two dozen Damen vessels.

The heavy-lift vessel began her journey by the end of September, laden with a total of 22 vessels, presenting Damen’s largest transportation of stock vessels to date.

Amongst these are two Fast Crew Suppliers (FCS) 2610 to be used at North Sea offshore wind parks.

Damen Service Coordinator Deliveries, John Slijkoord, explained Damen’s selection of BigLift for the project, saying: “As soon as we got the completed scope, we put it out on the market with our requirements. BigLift met all of those.”
