MV BraveWind’s sister vessel, MV BoldWind, was delivered to UWL back in May.

AIS data shows that MV BoldWind is currently navigating the Suez Canal on her way to Europe.

The 148.5-metre deck carriers are on long-term charters with MHI Vestas which will use the vessels to transport offshore wind components.

UWL has an option to order two additional deck carriers at Jiangsu Zhenjiang.

Besides MV BoldWind, the Hamburg-based company currently operates one other specialized deck carrier, MV Vestvind, which has been on a charter with MHI Vestas since June 2017.
