United Heavy Lift adds vessel performance monitoring system

United Heavy Lift (UHL) of Hamburg is to implement new vessel performance monitoring and optimisation systems from COACH Solutions, recently acquired by Kongsberg, following the agreement of a new deal.

The German company will use the new application to increase its digital capabilities and reduce the environmental footprint of its heavy lift, breakbulk and project cargo ships.
