Zeamarine Lands Major Contract for New Heavy Lift Tweendeckers

Heavy lift, breakbulk, and project carrier Zeamarine has secured an ocean transportation contract from Schenker Australia for the BHP South Flank project in Western Australia.

The contract will see Zeamarine’s newly-delivered ZEA 14k-900 tweendeck cargo ships transport some 450,000 freight tons from China to Port Hedland, Western Australia.

The majority of the cargo will be heavy and oversized modules, the company added.

The BHP South Flank project is located in the Pilbara, Western Australia, and will become one of the largest integrated mine sites in the world.

“The ZEA 14k-900 vessel class has proven again to be a valuable asset and we are pleased that our clients recognize the value of these modern and ecologically-friendly vessels,” Dominik Stehle, Chief Commercial Officer at Zeamarine, commented.

The nine F-900 multi-purpose vessels were delivered by China’s Guangzhou Wenchong Shipyard between 2018 and 2019.
