Fuel a more sustainable future

HAMBURG: March 26, 2018. SAL Heavy Lift, a subsidiary of Harren & Partner, is begin a new service linking West, South and East Africa with North Europe, the Arabian Gulf and Indian sub-Continent.

SALThe company says the new service, which covers full cargo and part cargo options for heavylift, break-bulk and project cargo, is in response to a “quickly developing” oil and gas, refining and transport infrastructure market, particularly in West Africa.

With 2-3 sailings a month in each direction from April 01 via the Cape of Good Hope, the company says its new Africa service is a “logical extension” of an existing North Europe to Far East rotation via Suez.

Head of SAL’s Africa Chartering Desk Jürgen Kuntz said: “We have considerable knowledge of African operations and excellent partners across the Continent and we hope to build on this with our new venture; not only by offering shipping services but as well providing logistics capabilities and technical, on-site support and consultancy through our sister company, SAL Engineering.”

SAL Heavy Lift operates 21 heavylift vessels with up to 3,500 square meters of unobstructed main deck space and combined crane capacities ranging from 550 to 2000 tons.

In February it announced a capacity pool with RollDock for Roll-On/Roll-Off and Float-In/Float-Out project and heavylift cargo from April 01.

SAL managing director Martin Harren commented at the time: "Between RollDock and SAL we quickly saw the advantages of working together. Through a consolidation, we will see a better utilization of the vessels and because we share our network of offices and agents, we can offer global representation of heavy shipping disciplines."
