teaser-db2018al00425-1024x576.jpgThe steel cutting ceremony was held in Xiamen on March 10, 2018.

From 2019, the ships powered by liquefied natural gas are to be operated by Siem Car Carriers and chartered to Volkswagen Group Logistics. Once completed, they will carry Volkswagen’s vehicles from Europe to North America, with LNG drive systems reducing the atmospheric pollutants emitted by the ships.

“Greater sustainability in logistics is a key issue for us. The use of two LNG ships for transporting vehicles is a major step forward which we can only take together with our strong partners,” Markus Lange, Head of Vehicle Logistics of Volkswagen Group Logistics, said at the steel-cutting ceremony.

The 60,000 gross ton newbuilds will feature a length of 199.9 meters and a width of 38 meters.

Compared with conventional vessels, the LNG ships will reduce CO2 emissions by up to 25 percent, NOX by up to 30 percent, particulates by up to 60 percent and sulfur oxides by as much as 100 percent, according to Volkswagen.(marine crane;offshore crane)

Fail-safe brakes on all movements.

Fully enclosed and equipped operator cabin with air condition.

The variable speed hoist will automatically adjust to the highest possible speed for the appropriate load.

Technology from Germany.

Base on many year's design and fabrication experience of crane and other similar equipment.

Suitable for all kinds of ships and low power consumption and high efficiency.

Welded and high strength box boom for easy maintenance.

With Many safety protection devices---hook up limiter and overload limiter, emergency stop button.

The availability of a telescopic or fixed jib extension on a telescopic boom is not only easy to attach and use, but it makes it possible to extend the reach of the crane boom by as much as 40 meter. With a jib, boom cranes are capable of reaching boom lengths as tall as 35 meter, which is very beneficial when placing loads at height or lifting personnel using a work platform.
