 BigLift Shipping welcomes Happy Sky   
Happy Sky is the latest addition to BigLift Shipping’s fleet of Heavy Lift Vessels. She was built by Larsen & Toubro in India. She features two 900 mt Heavy Lift Mast Cranes built by Huisman and commissioned at Huisman China’s premises at Zhangzhou. Today the name-giving ceremony of the Happy Sky was performed by Ms. Erni Bartel, the partner of Joop Rodenburg, CEO of Huisman. Huisman and BigLift Shipping share a long history together in the design of heavy lift cranes and handling materials. Besides that, Huisman has been a valuable customer for many years. At the same time of the name-giving ceremony, Huisman China has inaugurated its new 380 m long quay side including the 2,400 mt travelling quay side crane Sky Hook.

In a response to market demands, the crane pedestals are now 4 m higher than in the original plans, giving the vessel a lifting height unmatched in the world fleet of heavy lift vessels. Happy Sky is 155 m long and has 18.680 tdwt. The vessel’s length and the forward position of her superstructure offer a single, large cargo hold and a wide, open deck area. She has folding hatch covers, a large poop deck and cargo rails which make the vessel’s full deck area available for cargo stowage.

Happy Sky’s tween deck is adjustable in height and she is allowed to sail with open weather deck hatches at a draught of up to 7.5 m. Furthermore, she has Finnish/Swedish 1A Ice Class notation. During sea trials Happy Sky achieved a service speed of 17 kn. The first voyage will take her to Cape Lambert Port B, Phase B project in Australia. Happy Sky is the first of two Happy S Class vessels to be added to the BigLift fleet. Happy Star will follow early in 2014. With the Happy Sky, BigLift’s fleet consists of 14 state-of-the art vessels with lifting capacities to 1,800 mt.
