Intermarine Adds Heavy Lifter Industrial Grace to Fleet
Intermarine, LLC, the breakbulk, project, and heavy lift carrier, announced the addition of the Industrial Grace to its global fleet. The Industrial Grace is a P2 type vessel, 19,450 dwt super heavy lifter with two 700-ton cranes for a combined 1,400 ton lifting capacity.
The vessel recently completed her five-year dry-docking in Bremen, Germany, and joined the fleet as of August 10. She is the fourth G-Class ship to enter Intermarine’s Fleet of the Future in 2015, following the Globe, Grand and Glory. Intermarine’s Fleet of the Future also includes a newbuild program for the construction and delivery of more than 20 ships from 2016 to 2018.
“As we listen to our customers there is a strong interest in increased lifting capabilities for a small but important segment of clients,” said Al Stanley, president and CEO of Intermarine. “As we execute on our broader Fleet of the Future campaign, we have also investigated specific specialty vessels in the existing global pool. The Industrial Grace is a fine example of an opportunity where we were able to align our customers’ needs, our relationships with respected owners and our financial strength for a winning solution.”
Intermarine controls an international fleet of more than 50 vessels with lifting capacity up to 1,400 metric tons. The company provides ocean transportation and marine logistics services with regular sailings in the Americas, West Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East, and inducement voyages to Australia and other international ports.
