Tuesday 20 October 2015, BigLift Shipping’s heavy-lift vessel Happy Star arrived in the Port of Rotterdam. This is the first time Happy Star has visited the Netherlands, bringing with her Damen’s largest transportation of stock vessels to date; a total of 22 vessels.
Following the first loading operation at Shanghai, Happy Star made calls at the Vietnamese ports of Hai Phong and Da Nang and at Singapore to collect further vessels. The load consists of Damen ASD Tugs 2310, 2411 and 3212, Stan Tugs 1606, 1004 and 1907, Stan Pontoons 5213 and 3011 and FCS 2610 vessels.
Damen Service Coordinator Deliveries John Slijkoord explained Damen’s selection of BigLift Shipping for the project, as follows: “As soon as we got the complete scope, we put it out into the market with our requirements – BigLift met all of them.” BigLift Shipping is proud to have been selected as the transportation partner of Damen in this shipment.
