BigLift Shipping and Chung Yang Shipping from South Korea have reached an agreement for cooperation in heavy transport shipping in LNG, oil and gas markets.

A joint press release said that their four heavy transport vessels (HTVs) will be commercially operated by BigLift Shipping.

With this combination of two pairs of sisterships – BigLift Barentsz and BigLift Baffin and CY Interocean I and CY Interocean II – the companies are ready to meet the future demands in the LNG, Oil and Gas markets and the renewable market and will adhere to the highest QHSE standards.

The vessels are almost similar with respect to deck space, however, the CY vessels’ depth is less, enabling BigLift and Chung Yang to handle an even wider range of port locations in respect of water depth and quay heights. With the combined fleet more flexibility and availability can be offered to a market of challenging heavy transport projects.

Both Chung Yang and BigLift Shipping will provide technical and operational support in the early stages of the projects, providing customers with engineered and tailor-made solutions in the various project phases.
