Jumbo Orders Super Heavylift Ships from Damen

Tuesday, February 20, 2001

Scheduled for delivery in 2003, the new 11,000 dwt J-1600 class vessels will reportedly be the heaviest heavylift vessels in the world. The The design reflects demand for greater lift and outreach capabilities. The vessel’s equipment outfit takes account of market needs. The ships will have a pair of state-of-the-art rotating mast cranes, with a combined lift capacity of 1,600 tons at 16 m outreach and a maximum outreach of 35 m. The vessel’s shallow draft of 6.5 m maintains the small port operational capability that is the basis of the Jumbo fleet.
