Sal Heavy Lift, a member of Japanese shipping company K Line Group, has moved its head office to a maritime location at HafenCity in Hamburg.

The company has moved from its old head office in Steinkirchen on the Lower Elbe, where it was based for more than 30 years.

The move follows the beginning of the company’s new offshore department, which was set up to serve the expanding markets of heavy equipment transportation for the oil and gas industry, as well as the installation of offshore windfarms. SAL will operate its fleet of 16 heavy lift vessels from HafenCity.

Lars Rolner, CEO of SAL Heavy Lift said: “The strong maritime location of Hamburg is perfect for us to extend our professional network. Many important partners and companies of the shipping industry are located here and the central location with short ways to the airport and the main train station also means easy accessibility. That is very important for our international business activities.”

Hamburg’s senator of economy, Frank Horch added: “With SAL Heavy Lift, a company has moved in which enriches the maritime location. SAL Heavy Lift grows constantly, especially in transportation for the offshore area. Also that goes well with Hamburg because we want to become the capital for wind energy in Europe.”
