Intermarine starts Far East, India and Arabian Gulf Service

By: | at 07:00 PM | Channel(s): Liner Shipping  

In response to Asia’s fast growing project transportation market, Intermarine is now providing reliable on demand heavy lift service along the entire Asia coast from Japan, Korea and China in the East, to the Arabian Gulf nations in the West and all points in between. Intermarine’s new Far East, India and Gulf service combines some of the most modern and highest capacity heavy lift vessels with the proven expertise of America’s premier project transport company to provide delivery certainty for industrial transport challenges.

While making the new service announcement, Richard Seeg, Intermarine’s Asia Area Manager commented, ‘We have positioned to Asia several of our Century Class vessels capable of 400 metric ton self sustained lifts. These vessels are perfectly suited to meet the needs of new oil and gas facilities in the Middle East, power generation plants in Southeast Asia, and infrastructure development projects across the continent. With a voyage frequency of twice monthly, we are able to provide service virtually on demand.’

The Century Class vessels are modern 8,000 dwt ships equipped with twin 200 metric ton cranes combinable for 400 ton lifts, box holds, and adjustable tweendecks. Designed without transverse bulkheads, the vessels’ configuration minimize cargo handling expense, maximize cargo safety and can accommodate underdeck components up to 70 meters long. A true project cargo workhorse, the vessels boast more than 11,000 cbm’s of underdeck capacity and a 16.5 knot service speed.

With more than fifteen years of experience in the trans-Pacific trade and now constructing more than 200 project cargo voyages a year, Intermarine is a world leader in project transport. Mr. Seeg, from the company’s Asian Headquarters Office in Shanghai, will manage the new Far East, India and Gulf service. Supporting this group is a network of country agents selected for their expertise in heavy lift cargoes and breakbulk services.
