SAL Heavy Lift hoists German flag on six ships

Thursday, 05 Oct 2017

SAL Heavy Lift GmbH, part of the Harren & Partner Group, has begun the process of reflagging six of its vessels to the German flag.

The Svenja is the first vessel that was reflagged to the German flag

The first vessel to raise the German flag was the  Svenja on September 22nd and the five other vessels having their flags changed are the Trina, Anne-Sofie, Regina, Maria and Wiebke.
“It was a logical consequence,” declared Toshio Yamazaki, SAL Heavy Lift CEO. “A German family owned business with German built vessels operated by many German officers and now provided by all the advantages of a German flag.”
Sebastian Westphal, the company’s corporate director Ship Management added: “In view of the many benefits of the German flag, we decided to initiate the reflagging process. I know our crew on board is proud to hoist the German flag.”
