MV UHL Fighter (H1705A), a series state-of-the-art F900 Eco-Lifter, was delivered to United Heavy Lift (UHL) on December 11, 2021.
UHL took delivery of the newbuilding MV UHL Fighter at the Hudong shipyard in Shanghai, China. “We affirm our company’s commitment to contributing to an eco-friendly shipping industry by investing in fuel-efficient tonnage. We took delivery of seven identical F900 newbuildings in 2021 and are looking forward to complementing our fleet with a final F900 newbuilding in early 2022,” said Lars Bonnesen, managing director of UHL. The last F900 Eco-Lifter newbuilding, MV UHL Felicity, will be delivered to UHL approximately in March 2022.
Once the newbuilding program is completed, UHL will service its clients with a fleet of seventeen F900 Eco-Lifter vessels, representing the most modern, versatile, and homogeneous heavy lift fleet in the market. In addition, the F900 Eco-Lifter vessels are the most fuel-efficient heavy lift vessels in service. “The carbon footprint of the F900 class is 30-50% less compared to the existing heavy lift fleet in the market,” stated Bonnesen. “The new vessels offer superior intake and crane capacity to cater to the needs of a wide range of industry clients and cargos.”
