Wilhelmsen Ship Management adds the world’s most advanced heavy lift vessel to their managed fleet

Wilhelmsen Ship Management (WSM) claims another advanced asset type in their portfolio of high-end segments.

WSM has been nominated as the ship manager for MV GPO Grace, GPO Heavylift’s purpose-built semisubmersible vessel. The process of securing the second contract with GPO Heavylift for the second heavy-lift vessel, MV GPO Amethyst is currently ongoing.

“This will be the most technologically advanced heavy lift vessel in the world. It will be our first heavy lift vessel in our managed fleet today and we aim to expand further in this segment,”says Carl Schou, President of Wilhelmsen Ship Management.

“With this latest addition into our managed fleet, it is a comeback for us in the heavy lift segment. Such advanced vessel fits well with our digital solution which will enhance operational efficiency,” he said.

MV GPO Grace will be managed by the Oslo management center and will sail with a full complement of Latvian crew.
