United Heavy Lift takes over management of Chinese heavylift ships

Hamburg-based heavylift vessel manager United Heavy Lift (UHL) has announced that the company has expanded into new markets by taking over management of a number of Chinese heavylifters.
The company has taken the management of a newly built DP2 deck carrier vessel, Zhi Xian Zhi Xing and its sister vessel, which is due for delivery by the end of this year from Shanghai-based Zhixian Transportation. The 26,000 dwt vessel is built for the transportation of roro cargo, particularly large modules.
Additionally, United Heavy Lift has become an agent on behalf of GS-Pango International, the exclusive commercial agent of Guangzhou Salvage, which operates a fleet of four semi-submersible vessels ranging from 26,000 dwt to 50,000 dwt.
“With the combined fleet, the strong in-house engineering and project management UHL together with GS-Pango International is able to offer their full support to the market, in particular to modular transportation projects,” UHL said in a release.
Founded in 2015, UFL offers heavylift solutions through a managed fleet of 14 vessels.
