BigLift Barentsz sails Northern Sea Route for Pioneering Spirit

On October 7, 2018 our Heavy Transport Vessel BigLift Barentsz arrived in Rotterdam from China by way of the Northern Sea Route.


BigLift Barentsz carried parts of the new 5,000 mt crane for Allseas’ Pioneering Spirit.

Happy Buccaneer’s 250th voyage

Last August, Happy Buccaneer performed her 250th voyage for BigLift Shipping. She was commissioned in 1984 for Mammoet Shipping and was for many years the most sophisticated heavy lift vessel on the planet.


34 years on, she still ranks with the best, with her 1,400 mt tandem lifting capacity, her stern ramp for cargoes upto 2,500 mt and her lifting height.


We wish her continued safe sailing.

Crane capacity Happy Star upgraded to 2,200 mt

In September Happy Star’s two Heavy Lift Mast Cranes were upgraded to 1,100 mt lifting capacity each, at the Huisman Service & Assembly location in Schiedam, the Netherlands.


After a thorough testing programme, Happy Star departed for Porto Maghera, Italy to load two 1,500 mt reactors – the first commercial cargo to be lifted with her upgraded cranes.
