Vertom Joy: A State-of-the-Art Vessel

We recently welcomed a new vessel into our fleet operating on the European Caribbean Line, the state-of-the-art MV Vertom Joy. The christening of MV Vertom Joy took place in Vlissingen, in the province of Zeeland, Netherlands. Upon completion of the christening, Vertom Joy sailed up the Scheldt estuary to Antwerp where she was loaded with her first cargo destined for the north coast of South America. The Vertom Joy is the fourth vessel to be brought into service on the European Caribbean Line, and it is by far the most impressive as it is twice the size of any of the other vessels we operate on the ECL.

Having wind turbines transported by Vertraco – Here’s how it works

Wind turbines are a great source of green energy that doesn't pollute the air, burden the climate, or deplete raw materials. However, transporting these large structures can be a challenge since they don't fit into standard shipping containers. To give an idea of the scale of such projects: the average height of a wind turbine’s mast is between 60 to 120 meters. This is where Vertraco comes in. With our project cargo services, Vertraco can transport wind turbines to any location in the world.
