New paint job and more capacity for BigLift

SINGAPORE: BigLift Shipping’s new livery had its first viewing recently with the arrival of BigLift Baffin in Singapore to deliver a crane boom and luffing frame for Heerema Marine Contractor’s new flagship Sleipnir from the Huisman wharf in Xiamen, China.

Following the end of the partnership with Rolldock at the end of last year to manage MC-Class vessels, BigLift has reacquired its two wide deck carriers and added to its heavy transport fleet.

Biglift says it is now focusing on the Renewable and LNG markets that include transport of jackets and the new generation monopiles as well as large modules for substantial LNG projects.

The company says it is also looking at opportunities “in a rebalancing Oil & Gas segment” and at the global expansion of existing and new port projects.

BigLift Shipping, a member of the Spliethoff Group, provides worldwide ocean transportation of heavylift and project cargo with a fleet of 16 transport vessels. Later this year a third ‘Happy S-Type’ vessel will be added to the fleet.

All the vessels incorporate lifting capacities up to 1,800 tonnes and some have RoRo capability for loads up to 2,500 tonnes, says the company.
