RollDock and SAL Heavy Lift forms world’s first pool for dock vessels
As of April 1st 2018 the world’s first pool for dock vessels will be established. RollDock and SAL Heavy Lift will join forces for Roll-On / Roll-Off and Float-In / Float-Out heavy lift cargoes. The pool will consist of the combined fleet of six vessels and will be managed by RollDock with SAL providing specialized heavy break bulk cargo support.
RollDock has over the past decade developed into a world recognized Roll-On / Roll-Off + Float-In / Float-Out carrier with their fleet of the most technically advanced dock type vessels. SAL Heavy Lift has for over 37 years, been a symbol of premium project shipping solutions with their fleet of high class heavy geared vessels.
Paul Könst, CEO RollDock explains; “Both SAL and RollDock stands for superior shipping solutions in their respective fields, where we place the engineering part of our work at the forefront. Our companies share the same philosophy on client focus, quality, innovation and safety. With our pool, we will be offering a competitive yet high quality heavy transport service.”
The pool will consist of six geared dock vessels, all being operated under the RollDock brand. Five of the vessels comes from the existing RollDock fleet (S and ST class vessels) and one from SAL (Combi Dock I). Through a strong global network of offices and agents, the pool will have representation in all major regions. Both companies will also continue independently and operate vessels outside the pool.
