Multi-purpose shipping takes on a heavier role

A study recently published by the Dutch consultancy group Dynamar of breakbulk shipping* highlights the top ten operators in terms of order book for the heavy lift sector, which it defines as having a minimum lift capacity of 100t, and shows 107 ships on order (as of December 2009) aggregating 2.65 mt deadweight.

This is composed of 60 vessels with a lift capacity of between 100t to 500t plus a further 83 ships which have a lifting capacity, defined by Dynamar as the weight of the cargo item that can be lifted rather than the overall combined lifting capacities of the ships’ cranes.
