 dship Carriers, the multi-purpose project carrier belonging to the deugro Group, is expanding its fleet, adding three heavy-lift MPP vessels in July/August 2017, which will primarily be used for trade lanes between Asia, the Persian Gulf, and Europe.

 
MVs Holandia, Helvetia, and Gallia were named after vessels that the Press family owned and operated in the 1980s. “With a combined lifting capacity of 240 metric tons and dead weight of 12,780 metric tons, these vessels are well-suited to support our growing client base and the contracts we have been awarded,” said Arne Koester, Executive Chartering Manager at dship Carriers.
 
dship Carriers will continue to invest in project vessels between 9,500 and 17,500 DWT in order to further complement the existing fleet.
 
“We are uniquely situated and committed to purchasing vessels in order to continue building our fleet and increase our market share,” Holger Hinrichs, Vice President of dship Carriers, commented.
 
dship Carriers is a global ocean carrier that manages and operates a fleet of multi-purpose vessels designed to support the specialized needs of breakbulk, heavy-lift, dry bulk, and project cargo clients. Our offices, strategically located in Houston, Tokyo, Singapore and Bremen, are staffed with leading industry experts in the areas of chartering, naval engineering, stowage planning, and other related maritime services.
