United Heavy Lift has booked another two lifter newbuilds from CSSC Hudong Zhonghua Shipbuilding.

The new and enhanced F900 Eco-Lifter class features high- and low-pressure SCR catalysts to meet IMO Tier III requirements. With minimized CO2 emissions, the vessel class exceeds latest EEDI benchmarks.

The two F900x Eco-Lifter newbuildings are expected to be delivered in 2023 and 2024.

"One of our goals is to reduce emissions from our own operations and help our clients achieve their decarbonization goals. Sustainability is an integral part of how UHL operates. Key to this change is to build and maintain one of the most modern and fuel-efficient MPP heavy lift fleets in the market. We are phasing out all UHL 800 P-type vessels and replacing them with fuel-efficient modern tonnage. Our vision is to become a sustainability leader in the heavy lift industry. said Andreas Rolner, managing director of United Heavy Lift.

Between 2019 and 2022, UHL took delivery of seventeen state-of-the-art F900 Eco-Lifters newbuildings for eco-friendly break bulk and heavy lift ocean transport.
