Jumbo Kinetic delivered

After a long fitting-out and a dispute over contractual requirements, the world’s largest heavy-lift ship, Jumbo Kinetic, left Brodosplit shipyard in Croatia for China, where two 1,500-tonne cranes will be installed at Huisman’s yard in Zhangzhou. The ship was basically ready in 2013, but the handover was held up by a dispute between builder and owner, Jumbo Shipping of the Netherlands, which has now been resolved. A sister vessel, Fairmaster, is to be completed this year, but has no such problems apart from a late delivery.

At 16,200gt and measuring 152m by 27m with a draught of 8m, the vessel can operate in most environments, as she also has Finnish-Swedish 1A ice classification from Lloyd’s Register and can move through metre-thick ice unassisted. She has two MaK 9M32C main engines that produce 9kW to give a top speed of 17 knots. With a combined lifting capacity of 3,000 tonnes, she will be working on deep-sea projects in Asia at first. JP
