AAL adds multipurpose heavylift pair to fleet

Breakbulk and heavylift operator AAL Shipping is adding two multipurpose heavylift vessels to its fleet.

The Pacific Action (to be renamed AAL Gibraltar) and AAL Gladstone have both served in the AAL fleet in the past, and will re-join during March.

The vessels feature a total cargo intake of 35,705 cu m, four large cargo holds, three tweendecks and a maximum lift capacity of 240 tonnes.

Kyriacos Panayides, managing director of AAL, commented: “Large heavy lift multipurpose ships of this calibre and lifting capability represent a small fraction of the global MPP fleet.”
