Wijnne Barends Adds Lady Harriët to their Fleet
Lady Harriët was christened by Mrs. Harriët Woudstra at Eemshaven, Groningen, on the 3rd of May 2022. This vessel is the 8th in their Lady H series.
The Wijnne Barends vessel has a load capacity of over 4,200 tons and a length of 98 meters. It meets the increased environmental requirements that apply to new-build vessels (Tier III standard). These standards, applicable worldwide and aimed at the reduction of emissions of nitrogen dioxide, were put into effect for all newly built vessels on American waters in January 2016.
These standards also apply in the main area of operation for the company, the North Sea and Baltic Sea. Because of this trade region these vessels, with a cargo hold of more than 6,000 m³, meet the highest Swedish/Finnish ice class.
Wijnne Barends is a part of the Amsterdam-based Spliethoff Group that plays a leading role in the worldwide transportation of project cargo, heavy lifts, general and Ro-Ro cargoes and yachts. The group manages a large and modern fleet of over 100 multi-purpose, heavy lift, Ro-Ro and semi-submersible vessels ranging in size from 3,000 to 23,000 tons DWT, under the Dutch flag. Spliethoff Group consists of Spliethoff’s Bevrachtingskantoor, BigLift Shipping, Sevenstar Yacht Transport, Transfennica, Bore and Wijnne Barends.
