Project pool formed

Thorco Projects and MC-Schiffahrt have created a new pool called MCT. The preliminary steps to the formation of the pool were taken back in November 2016 and have now become a reality. The new MCT pool consists of six 10,500 tons MPP vessels from MC-Schiffahrt and eight comparable vessels from Thorco Projects.

“We are very pleased that MC-Schiffahrt has shown us this confidence, which needs to be highlighted in today’s shipping scene,” said Thomas Mikkelsen, CEO of Thorco Projects.

Mad Dabelstein, CEO and partner of MC-Schiffahrt added: “In the current market it’s crucial to find reliable and well positioned partners. Our vessels fit very well with Thorco Projects’ needs and commercially it’s a great advantage for us to be a part of Thorco Projects platform. So in many ways it’s a very good match.”

The pair claim other parties are keen to join the new heavylift pool.
