Vessel Overview


The Trans Sea Lifter (TSL) is an oceangoing universal carrier, specialized only by its payload-barges. These barges can be of any type and size typically used in the Short-Sea or River-Sea trades.


In a typical Short Sea operation, a TSL sails on a fixed route connecting major and regional ports and river mouths on a ferry-like schedule. At each TSL stop:
- outbound barges are pre-positioned outside a port or a river mouth
- upon arrival, the TSL exchanges barges within 90 minutes and steams on


Unique TSL traits


- Large SWATH Sea Frame
- Open Cargo Platforms
- Multiple Drafts
- Float On/Float Off (Flo/Flo) Port Interface - executed outside port
- Seamless Networking Capability
- Green Ship for green transport chains

The TSL System offers new business opportunities to short sea shipping and ports, as it removes conventional constraints to accelerating throughput.
