United Wind Logistics receives delivery of MV BoldWind

Germany-based United Wind Logistics (UWL) has received the first of the two deck carriers MV BoldWind.

Germany-based United Wind Logistics (UWL) has received the first of the two deck carriers MV BoldWind. The second vessel will be delivered later this year.

MV BoldWind will commence her maiden voyage to Europe and will be involved in a long-term charter in the offshore wind industry.

During the voyage to Europe, the vessel will be used to transport windmill blades to Norway from China.

The vessel has a deadweight of 10,000 metric tonnes and a 128m-long and 28m-wide deck. The vessel offers increased flexibility and can accommodate huge or heavy cargo.

The vessel uses optimised hull design and diesel-electric propulsion.

ABB delivered the electric package powered by four MAN diesel generators that are operated by high-quality marine diesel oil (MDO).

The MAN engines also adhere to the IMO Tier III emission regulations as it features a selective catalytic reduction system.

UWL MD Puschmann said: “We are proud to affirm our company’s aspirations to take over as front-runners for the eco-friendly shipping industry. We are already looking forward to receiving the sister newbuilding MV BraveWind in four months from now.”

In January last year, China’s Jiangsu Zhenjiang Shipyard Group ordered four MAN GenSets to power a new deck carrier to be owned by United Wind Logistics.
