AAL boasts the sector’s youngest fleet of new generation and technologically advanced multipurpose heavy lift vessels. For 20 years we have serviced the world’s most dynamic industries and have become carrier of choice for some of the leading names in their respective sectors – handling all manner of breakbulk, heavy lift and project cargo and non-containerised bulk. Having completed our new building program in 2014 and with added quality tonnage through long-term time charters and global cooperations, we are today ranked among the world’s leading multipurpose operators, with carefully selected and highly flexible classes of mpp vessel positioned around the world, serving the needs of both our Tramp & Projects and Liner Services divisions.
Our fleet of 14 multipurpose heavy lift vessels offers superior infrastructure with side-mounted heavy lift cranes, large and even deck space, removable and height-adjustable ‘tween decks, large box shaped cargo holds with independent dehumidifiers, strengthened tank tops as well as appropriate lifting and lashing equipment. These highly versatile multipurpose vessels were designed to load and transport all manner of industrial and commercial heavy lift and dry bulk cargo to and from the busiest, or most remote, ports across the world. Our two classes of vessels – the A-Class (31,000 dwt) and the S-Class (19,000 dwt) also feature a combined lifting capacity (via 2 port mounted cranes) of 700 t.
With such a highly flexible heavy lift fleet at our disposal, we not only satisfy the rigorous daily demands of both our scheduled liner and our semi-liner services, but we can also recommend and assign mpp vessels to suit individual cargo and project requirements. Supporting this fleet is an in-house technical and engineering team, on-hand to plan and execute complex stowage and securing solutions that insure the safest possible transit of cargo, vessel and crew from port to port.
