were added to Jumbo’s fleet,” stated the company.


Jumbo celebrates 50th anniversary


This year Jumbo celebrates 50 years of business in the heavy lift shipping arena.


I


n many ways, the history of Jumbo runs parallel to the evolution of the heavy lift transport industry. At a time when pallets and containers were considered the cutting edge of ocean transportation, Hans Kahn, founder of Jumbo, had a vision of a dedicated concept for handling those pieces that were not suitable for these methods.


First vessel This idea carried through into the production of Hans’ first vessel – Stellaprima, in co-operation with Borchard Lines. Delivered in 1956, the vessel was considered a remarkable innovation at the time due to its adjustable tween deck, large hatch, and loading derricks that could lift up to 12 tonnes. In essence, this vessel was the prototype for Jumbo’s future fleet. Jumbo itself was incorporated in 1968, alongside the addition of Stellanova, which

was the first vessel to truly embody the concept of Jumbo’s heavy lift vessels. Over the years the company’s fleet has grown progressively in size from A-class right through to the current flagship K-class vessels it operates today. “Jumbo was founded on this desire to sail against the stream of current trends and find a better course. That same, forward- thinking, future focus was in place throughout the growth of the company. Every few years, a new class of better, stronger, safer and more efficient vessels


Unsurprisingly, Jumbo is today considered a world leader in heavy lift transport, which continues to embody its founding principles of reliability and innovation. Over the years its activities have diversified somewhat giving rise to separate divisions – Jumbo Shipping, which embodies the company’s traditional heavy lift transport operations, and Jumbo Offshore, specialising in offshore installation contracting. Continuing the forward-thinking mindset of its founder, Jumbo launched its Innovation Programme in 2011. With two major aims – developing innovative transport and installation solutions, and continuously advancing the company’s reliability, safety and cost effectiveness – Jumbo supported the programme with a dedicated research and development (R&D) team to gather and evaluate ideas. According to Jumbo, this programme builds on a long history of innovations, including record-breaking heavy lift capacity by shallow draught vessels with flush decks, and heavy lift transport vessels that can be modified into offshore installation vessels, incorporating dynamic positioning (DP) and various modular appliances.


Fleet range As the company nears the half-century mark, its fleet features lifting capacities ranging from 650 to 3,000 tonnes, providing heavy lift transportation and installation solutions for a wide range of industries.


It will celebrate the occasion by


showcasing its innovations on a new website – www.discoverjumbo.nl Looking back through decades of


growth, the website will include movies, personal stories, interviews, and photographs over the last 50 years in the industry, shedding new light on Jumbo’s history, challenges and accomplishments. “From the men and women that do the


heavy lifting, to the commercial, engineering, operations and support teams. They are going above and beyond, on every continent and in every ocean to take the shipping and offshore industry into the next 50 years. “This year, we will discover 50 years of


pride in our company, our fleet, and our colleagues that make Jumbo what it is today.”
