German Dry Cargo Division Breaks Into Super Yachts
The Bremen, Germany-based company within Hamworthy KSE's Dry Cargo Handling Division has entered into a specialist market honing in on its innovative skills — the fast-growing super yacht market.
The company, which specializes in tailor- made solutions to shipowners cargo handling requirements, as well as the Super Yacht newbuilding market — now has the ability to meet the fast changing requirements of the marine industry. It has accomplished this by securing two contracts to design, supply and supervise specialized equipment installation onboard two large Super Yachts building at two German shipyards - Kroger Werft and Lurssen Werft for undisclosed owners. The 325 ft. (99 m) vessel that is being constructed at Kroger Werft is named Pelorus. The contract requires the design and delivery of side shell doors, an internal bulkhead door and stem platform. Equipment was scheduled for the end of 2000 with Kroger Werft due to deliver the vessel in April 2002. Currently nearing completion at the yard's Bremen facility is the 320 ft. (97.2 m) long Faberge, which is equipped with virtually the same equipment supply as Pelorus. The vessel is scheduled for delivery later this year.
