The Ocean Liner Services team had the opportunity of providing husbandry services, crew changes and bunkers to another heavy-lift vessel, the Boskalis Transshelf, when she called on the port of Walvis Bay recently.
Boskalis operates the largest fleet of specialized semi-submersible heavy transport vessels (SSHTVs) in the world. An HTV is a specialized vessel used in a number of specific offshore roles such as the transport of offshore drilling rigs, oil production platforms, floating production, storage and offloading units (FPSOs) and other exceptionally heavy cargoes.
The vessels are designed with good stability and seagoing characteristics. We work closely with our clients to allocate the right vessel at the right time at the desired location. With over 20 vessels in operation, Boskalis is the global heavy marine transport leader.
