Break Bulk: Jumbo Shipping has launched the first of two revolutionary new K3000 class vessels. The launch took place at Split in Croatia.
Many were there to witness the momentous occasion, including members of the Jumbo management team and personnel of the shipyard, Brodosplit. After the launch a party was held to celebrate this exciting event, which brings the K-class a step closer.
Once operational the new vessels will set new standards in the maritime heavy-lift sector. The vessels have large, unobstructed hold and flush decks and are certified 1A Finnish Swedish Ice Class, for operations in Arctic areas.
Work will now continue on the Jumbo Kinetic in Croatia, following which the vessel will sail to Huisman’s yard in China where it will be outfitted with dual 1,500-ton mast cranes, enabling lifting of up to 3,000 tons at an outreach of 20 meters.
