Pan Ocean Signs SAL as Agent

Breakbulk carrier SAL has signed an agreement to act as commercial agent for South Korean shipping company Pan Ocean.

The deal will see SAL represent Pan Ocean’s two semi-submersible deck carriers Sun Shine and Sun Rise, and work to promote these vessels to world markets. SAL now represents a fleet of up to five semi-submersible deck carriers including Combi Dock I, Combi Dock III, Papenburg, Sun Rise and Sun Shine.

“SAL is established as a fully comprehensive heavy-lift carrier being able to offer clients a wider array of heavy transport solutions. The amazing capacities of the Sun Rise and Sun Shine as semi-submersible heavy-lift carriers opens possibilities to our clients that was earlier beyond the scope of capabilities,” a spokesperson for SAL said.

SAL Heavy Lift, operates a fleet of heavy-lift vessels with combined crane capacities up to 2,000 tonnes. Earlier this year German firm shipping firm Harren announced a takeover of SAL creating a consolidated fleet of 26 vessels.
