Samskip Bolsters Nor Lines Shortsea Capacity(marine crane manufacturer;offshore crane manufacturer)

- Sep 30, 2018-

samskip-768x425.jpg“The overhaul, effective from October 1st, 2018, will meet rising demand for reefer and project cargo services southbound and increase capacity for conventional and project cargoes northbound along the Norwegian coast and beyond to Murmansk,” the company said.

As a result, two existing multi-purpose service loops increase to three.

The capacity on the three-ship Nor Lines service between Baltic ports and Norway will be expanded to four vessels, each with reefer/palletized and deck space, and 50mt heavylift crane capacity. However, the combined service will be split, with two vessel pairs operating separate schedules.

One pair will connect northern Norway with German and Dutch ports, focusing on frozen fish/project cargoes southbound and palletized/project cargoes northbound.

The other ship pair will serve importers and exporters in Danish and Polish ports, connecting with Western Norway in the Fredrikstad-Tromsø range, calling weekly northbound and prioritizing southbound calls for reefer/project cargo volumes.

Meanwhile, the separate Nor Lines’ multipurpose liner service connecting the Netherlands to Western, Mid and Northern Norway weekly will add a call at the Dutch port of Velsen.

The Nor Lines Netherlands-Norway multipurpose liner service is maintained by the LNG-powered vessels Kvitbjørn and Kvitnos, each offering 1,500 lane metres of RoRo capacity, 122 TEU as container space, 1,500 tons of reefer space and heavylift crane capability.

“Taken together, this revised service structure adds significant capacity and flexibility for those doing business in Norway, strengthening Nor Lines’ in the dry and project cargo, seafood and palletized segments,” says Caesar Luikenaar, Samskip Trade Director Norway.
