United Heavy Lift (UHL) has confirmed an order worth an estimated $90m for two more F900-type multipurpose heavylift vessels to be built in China.

The newbuildings, which have a lifting capacity of up to 900 tonnes each, will be delivered from the CSSC shipyard in Hudong in 2023 and 2024.

They will add to 17 of the eco-lifters already delivered to the German company since 2019.
