Heavy lift vessel MV Lone, owned by heavy lift and project cargo transporter SAL Heavy Lift, arrived in the Dutch Port of Rotterdam carrying a batch of twelve Damen vessels.

The multiple vessel shipment comprises various Damen Tugs and one Multi Cat that have been constructed at Damen’s shipyards in Vietnam.

Consisting of two Stan Tugs 2608, three ASD Tugs 2411, four ASD Tugs 2810, two ASD Tugs 3212 and a Multi Cat 1908, the shipment is a strategic positioning of built-for-stock vessels in Europe.

“SAL Heavy Lift has once again proved itself a strong partner to Damen by transporting these twelve vessels with our type-183 vessel MV Lone,” Justin Archard, Corporate Director Commercial with SAL Heavy Lift, said.

“With a combinable lift capacity of 2,000 tonnes, more than 3,300m² deck space and a hold size of 107.1 x 17 x 13.7 metres, MV Lone is the right ship for the job of transporting these vessels safely and rapidly from Vietnam to the Netherlands.”

SAL Heavy Lift has supported Damen with engineered heavy lift transport solutions on numerous occasions, including last year’s transport of Stan Pontoons and Tugs from Damen yards in China and Vietnam. This shipment of 14 vessels was transported by SAL’s MV Svenja.
