What is a Heavy Lift Vessel?

A Heavy Lift Vessel is a type of cargo ship that is specifically designed to transport heavy and oversized cargo. These vessels are equipped with specialized cranes and other equipment that can lift and move heavy loads onto and off of the ship. 


Heavy Lift Vessels are used to transport a wide variety of cargo, including large machinery, construction equipment, and other heavy or bulky items that cannot be transported by standard cargo ships. They are often used in the oil and gas industry, as well as in the transportation of wind turbine components, power plant equipment, and other large-scale infrastructure projects.
