Jumbo Places Repeat Order for Vessels with 1600t Lift Capacity

Jumbo set world records last year by entering service with her 1600t lift capacity vessels mv Jumbo Javelin and mv Fairpartner. In order to meet the growing demand in the evolving oil & gas industry both onshore and offshore, Jumbo has order sister vessels with Damen Shipyards in Poland with scheduled delivery dates by December 2007 and June 2008.

With an overall length of 143 m, the J1600 class has a completely flush main deck. For optimum stowage configuration, each of the tweendeck pontoons is variable in height. Like the other vessels within Jumbo's fleet, the J-class vessels feature small port operation capabilities. Lifting single cargo objects up to 1600t weight at a maximum radius of 32m and accommodating cargo lengths in excess of 150m, Jumbo's J-class has set a new standard in the industry.

By this fleet expansion, Jumbo will serve her customers with a versatile fleet of 14 heavy lift vessels with lifting capacity in the range of 500- to 1600t.
