We meet your
transportation needs

Our selfdischarging ships provide the most flexible, efficient and cost saving method for transporting bulk cargo and break bulk cargo – with loading and discharging operations fully performed by the ships’ crews. With our multipurpose vessel M/V “Gullaas” we also provide supply base transport for the oil industry.

 

See videos showing how it works!

Selfdischarging vessels

Our specialty is selfdischarging bulk carriers. These vessels are fitted with an excavator secured to a travelling gantry. This enables the most efficient and careful loading and discharging of any cargo. By selfloading and selfdischarging with our vessels’ equipment, costly loading and discharging facilities ashore are avoided and you will save both time and money due to our fast operations. You are free to choose berth, completely independent of shore cranes and stevedores, and can even reduce road transport. Our vessels are especially suited when it is imperative to avoid crushing of cargo.

 

Our selfdischargers can handle almost any bulk cargo, but also logs, bigbags, and other break bulk cargoes. Loading and discharging operations are fully performed by the vessel’s crew, including trimming and sweeping. Our vessels are capable of discharging up to about 600-700 tons per hour.

 

As our vessels’ holds are steelfloored and fully boxshaped without any obstructions, they can also trade as modern multipurpose vessels for general cargoes and project cargoes. The excavator can be parked in the forward or aft position on top of the vessel’s hatch, avoiding conflict with crane operations from shore.

Supply base transport

M/V “Gullaas” is our multipurpose ship which provides transportation services for the oil industry. Fitted with a tweendeck and two cranes, each with 20 mtons SWL, she is fully self-sustained. She has a very skilled crew who load, lash, and discharge the cargo themselves. The ship is owned jointly with Gull Shipping, and is operated by Gesi Shipping - mainly between the supply bases around the Norwegian Coast. Although the oil industry is our main customer, “Gullaas” is suitable for any general cargoes, containers and project cargoes.

 

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or transportation needs.
