On May 16, the German heavy lift shipping company United Heavy Lift (UHL) announced that it has ordered two F900 Eco-Lifter multi-purpose heavy lift ships in Hudong Zhonghua, which are scheduled to be delivered between 2023 and 2024.
UHL operates one of the youngest and most energy-efficient multi-purpose heavy lift fleets on the market, including 17 state-of-the-art F900 Eco-Lifter-type vessels to take delivery between 2019 and 2022. The 17 ships are owned by CSSC, of which 12 were built by Hudong Zhonghua and the other 5 were built by Huangpu Wenchong.
With Hudong Zhonghua‘s latest two orders finalized, UHL has increased its F900 Eco-Lifter series fleet to 19 vessels, the most modern and fuel-efficient heavy lift vessel fleet in the industry, with a carbon footprint ratio of Existing heavy lift vessels, are 30-50% lower. The new ships will be equipped with high and low-pressure Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) technology to meet Tier III requirements and minimize CO2 emissions, exceeding the latest Ship Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) benchmarks.
It is understood that in the field of heavy lift ship construction, Hudong Zhonghua has rich experience in product design and construction, and has made continuous breakthroughs in lean construction and innovative management. The F900 Eco-Lifter multi-purpose heavy lift ship is one of its classic ship types. one. This type of ship has a total length of 149.99 meters, a width of 25.6 meters, a depth of 13.5 meters, a design draft of 6.8 meters, a structural draft of 8.3 meters, a service speed of 15.3 knots, a deadweight of 14,100 tons, and two 450-ton cranes with a total lifting capacity of 900 tons. , Class DNV, has the characteristics of a strong ability to adapt to goods, high efficiency in collecting goods, and excellent environmental protection performance.
